Belmont Storefronts
LAA, with a team of consultants, provided architectural design and construction administration services to the owner of an early century single story commercial building (Circa 1920) in Belmont, MA. This masonry-bearing wall structure with wood-framed components had been severely damaged by a fire. LAA's design boosted the presence of 8,000 SF of retail space on eight distinct stores located on a recently reconstructed streetscape.

The front facade of this corner building retains the original brick veneer band at the upper portion, while the walls consist of a brick veneer capped with a grey limestone sill. The front facade features columns constructed with vintage cast stone units. The color selections create clean facade while highlighting the signage area and storefront of each bay.
