D&R Verona, a joint venture between Dinallo Construction Corporation and Russo Development, retained DMR to design an adaptive reuse of the historic site of the former Annin Flag Company manufacturing facility. Known as Annin Lofts, the residential development offers 112 residential units in Verona, NJ.
The project transformed the historic building, which required careful coordination and attention to historic guidelines. The project also included an adjacent new construction component.
The design converted the existing Annin building into 52 loft-style apartment units, including the addition of a penthouse. The new construction building included 60 more units. DMR’s designs take advantage of the 13’ high ceilings that are complemented with an urban loft style design, including polished concrete floors, exposed structure and ducts, and large windows in each studio, one- or two-bedroom unit.
Amenities are shared between the two buildings and contain roof top terraces, a fitness center, club rooms and on-site parking for residents and guests.
