Industrial aesthetic transforms former bus maintenance garage into “cool tech hub”

Kenneth Boroson Architects was retained as the prime architect with STUDIOS Architecture of SoHo to design a dramatic change of use for the former CT Transit bus depot in New Haven. Known as DISTRICT New Haven, the new innovative tech business campus includes the adaptive reuse of a substantial portion of the original garage and a new beer garden café building.

The 9.3-acre site, which was partially contaminated, has been environmentally restored, and approximately half of the original garage was demolished. The remaining 100,000 sf structure was renovated to accommodate the Digital Surgeons corporate office, a co-work business incubator, an athletic club, and a variety of other tenants.
