Palmer Park is an adaptive reuse of a century-old synagogue, and more recently a Boys and Girls club, into a 14-unit apartment building consisting of 1- to 3-bedroom apartments. The project preserves the old yellow brick and limestone structure designed by architect Edward Steinborn in the 1920s, and works within the existing two-story volume of the building, with new balconies and ground-level patios projecting off the west side of the building. Historic masonry, terrazzo floors, and plaster detail elements have been joined by modern fixtures creating a unique mix of materials, instilling a sense of antique charm while providing modern convenience. The development team worked extensively with the community to redevelop the west lot of the building, where the club had a fenced playground, into a publicly accessible pocket park. This park serves as a physical link to the community while also acting as an amenity space for the tenants, whose balconies and patios overlook the park.
