Old A.F. Bornot Dye Works Building Getting a Facelift

Bornot Dye plantWe just love to see life breathed back into old vacant buildings here in Philly. There’s something to be said about recognizing the potential of a building with really great bones, and even more to say about taking that recognition and turning it into action. That’s why we’re excited to hear that the Bornot Dye Works building (17th & Fairmount) is getting a much-needed second chance at the hands of MM Partners. Historically, MM Partners typically sticks close to their Brewerytown roots, but we’re so glad they’ve ventured north of Logan Square and given this diamond in the rough a shot.

Back in the eve of the 20th century, the building plans, designed by architect Werner Trumbower, were noted in the 1919 edition of Cleaning and Dyeing World, a publication on the Who’s Who of the dye world.

The folks at MM Partners have big plans for this space that will bring even better things to the already great Spring Garden neighborhood, largely populated by more recent arrivals to the city who sought out reasonably priced roomy homes. The 75,000 sqft warehouse will be converted into both a retail and commercial space (some highlights expected include a bank branch, yoga studio, and coffee shop), as well as 18 residential apartments with 2 high-end lofts. Work has already begun on the massive project and is expected to wrap up late summer/early fall 2015.
