New signage has been hung at 973 Market Street, a.k.a. The Wilson, a seven story building located between 5th and 6th streets. The building is currently undergoing an extreme makeover that will convert the historic structure into 65 apartments designed by local firm BDE Architecture. Built in 1904, the building has housed numerous commercial and educational facilities, but this is the first time it will be used for residential purposes. When completed, the units will be loft-style and have exposed brick walls, while a 2,000 sq. ft. rooftop deck will satisfy outdoor space requirements. Leasing is expected to begin this spring, but the building has been designed with the possibility of going condos in the future.
