Built in 1901, the factory building for the American Cigar Company housed the production of a major US cigar manufacturer and was one of several comparable factory buildings that made Trenton the hub of East Coast cigar production. This historic resource is now preserved and transformed into 64 market-rate apartment loft-style units. The 5′ x 8′ high windows were replaced with solid hardwood wood units to match the existing fenestration. Brick surfaces and the natural ash floor were exposed and refinished to their natural beauty.
The building is registered on the National Register of Historic Places, and the project received Historic Preservation Tax Credits.
