At the time, the building was the first in Philadelphia to use multi-colored terra cotta, in addition to brick and reinforced concrete.
Home to innovators, The Steele Building’s first occupant was Horn & Hardart’s Baking Company, the first automat in the United States. We restored and reinvented the Steele Building with this cutting-edge legacy in mind, featuring loft-style office space and ground floor restaurant space in the up-and-coming Midtown Village neighborhood of Philadelphia. The Steele Building is currently occupied by The Yard, the first Philadelphia location of the Brooklyn-based coworking company, and local fast casual restaurants Honeygrow and Luke’s Lobster.
The Steele Building reopened May 2017.
