American Metro

American Metro, a former American Standard manufacturing plant, was selected for conversion into Class A offices.  The renovated facility features historic elements that were preserved from the existing structure, combined with modern improvements.  Existing kilns, terracotta exterior tile, mosaic work, exposed brick walls, along with exposed duct work, large windows and skylights create an elegant, contemporary workplace.
