The 60,000-square-foot historic former Eisenlohr & Brothers Cigar Factory is part of the non-profit Crispus Attucks Association’s 10-year project to revitalize the Southern Gateway of York.  This 96-year old building has been converted into Class A loft-style office space with fiber optic cable and wireless Internet throughout.  Construction crews used corn blasting to remove white paint from the building’s interior rather than harsh chemicals that could have harmed hardwood and future workers.  An addition, built on an adjacent brownfield site, houses new conduits, plumbing, fire stairs, handicap-accessible entrances and elevator service, and enabled the integrity and details of the older building to be preserved.  The building is a candidate for LEED Silver certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.
