The TractorWorks building stands as the landmark for the expanding creative and diverse North Loop neighborhood. Like its community, the building itself has had many lives and continues to evolve. In March of 2008, it was re-born as the TractorWorks building, a modern homage to its former life as a John Deere tractor factory.
While the exterior of the building features the picturesque massing and round-headed arches of the Dichardsonian Romanesque period, the interior tells the other side of the story. Renovations boast polished concrete, frosted glass, oxidized steel, and contemporary fabrics through the space, an aesthetic that when paired with the original brick and timber design illustrates the energetic union of past and future.
This building definitely has more than one story to tell.
