Ford Assembly Building Rehabilitation
Project / Program Description
The Ford Building Rehabilitation Project is bringing the historic Ford Assembly Building at the foot of Harbour Way into use once again as an important destination along the Richmond shoreline.
The building is being redeveloped by Orton Development, Inc. and the Richmond Community Redevelopment Agency into a mixed-use project to include offices, retail centers, industrial / research and development sites, restaurants, residential areas, the Rosie the Riveter Visitor Center, and the Craneway Pavilion event center.
The total leased space is now at 90% occupancy, or about 420,000 square feet. Tenants include Sun Power, Vetrazzo, and Mountain Hardware. Staff is monitoring space planning meetings between Orton and the National Park Service regarding the development of the Rosie the Riveter National Historic Park Visitors Center.
