Piston & Ring Building

The Piston & Ring building, part of our 12th Avenue Marketplace project, was built in 1926 and is a classic example of the tall three-bay design typical of many automotive buildings of its era. Our renovation and expansion in 2006 restored the storefront and inserted a number of new elements including a mezzanine, a central lobby and stair, a daylight lower level and, at the back of the building, a dramatic two-story window wall looking onto a two-level outdoor terrace.

The building is now home to Osteria La Spiga, Plum Bistro, Preservation Green Lab, Framework, Beacon Crest IT Consulting, allied8, The Scotch Pine, Anne Viggiano Color Design, Costigan Integrated, and Shelfbot.
