Construction is complete on the $3 million historic renovation of the former Langenberg Hat Building at 330 W. Front St in Washington. It also was the Hirschl and Bendheim cob pipe factory.

As general contractor, Knoebel Construction converted the two-story brick building into a multiuse space featuring 6, two-bedroom lofts and Streetside Tacos, a sit-down restaurant on the first floor.

The developer was Marquart Landing Properties, L.L.C., Washington, and the architect was The Van Hooser Partnership, St. Louis.

The construction of the historic building included renovation of the façade, structural modifications and all-new HVAC, electrical, plumbing, roofing, sidewalks, stairs, parking lot and elevator.

The historic renovation was funded in part through the city’s Downtown Building Rehabilitation Program.

The new 2,020-square-foot Streetside Tacos features an open-view kitchen, outdoor patio, vibrant artwork, salsa and chip bar and views of the Missouri River and Washington Riverfront.

The first floor also features two lofts, offices and room for future build-out of additional retail space.

Four additional lofts are located on the second floor.

The 1,350 to 1,730-square-foot, one-bedroom and one-and-a-half bathroom lofts retain the historic charm of the building with exposed brick, hardwood floors, wood beams and tall ceilings.
