The existing six-story, 55,300 square-foot former factory building will be expanded to 156,629 square feet via a 19-story vertical extension. Of the total square-footage, 2,311 square feet of space will be designated for ground-floor retail.

Earlier this year, YIMBY reported on plans for a 36-story, 288-unit building at 10 Riverside.
