Built in 1864, it derives its historic status as the old Peaks Mason Mints factory. The Peaks Mason Mint company was in business here between 1892 and 1949. According to www.forgotten-ny.com “Mason Peaks was a coconut-chocolate combination (like Mounds) while Mason Mints was a chocolate-covered mint patty (like today’s Peppermint Pattie). Mason also made Dots, a fruit or cinnamon-flavored gumdrop, and Crows, a licorice-flavored gumdrop. Both are still distributed by Tootsie Roll, which acquired Mason in 1972.”
The building now houses 38 loft apartments ranging from $580k to $2.46 million, spread between the original Peaks Mason Mints factory and the new 4 story addition built in the space of the old garden.
The apartments themselves will retain the original wooden structural beams and columns from the Peaks Mason building, but will feature new Landmark approved energy efficient windows in the style of the old ones and white oak hardwood floors. Amenities will include a fitness center, bike room, Bosch appliances, a washer and dryer in each apartment and a full time doorman. The Middagh building, which is the original Peaks Mason Mints building, will have a green roof, while the Poplar building, which is the addition, will have roof access.
“The Poplar building takes its architectural style from the north wall of the historic building, interpreting 1960’s industrial motif into a modern classic. Modern elements include floor to ceiling glass windows, open kitchens and loft style living,” explains spokesperson Jill Feldman.
In between the two buildings will be a landscaped courtyard replete with trees, grass, benches and a very mod statue thing.
