I love me a creepy space and with Halloween coming up, what better time to take a tour of the Ice Blocks Development in Sacramento? I’ve had the brilliant opportunities of capturing some amazing redevelopment projects in downtown for my job and this one is no different. A full story is up on the City’s blog.
A former Crystal Ice factory, the space has thick walls, an industrial feel and plenty of liquid light through its hallways. I can’t wait to see this one finished with tenants in place; it is surely going to be an awesome project once finished.
-UPDATE Nov. 7, 2015-
The Ice Blocks structure suffered a catastrophic fire and looks like the building itself is a complete loss. Sad news for Sacramento and this development. Read the story from Sacramento Bee.
“The fire hit the century-old Crystal Ice and Cold Storage building at the southeast corner of 16th and R streets. Flames from the blaze could be seen throughout downtown and smoke filled the early morning air.” – Ryan Lillis, SacBee
Hopefully I’ll be invited back in the future to capture how the project rolls along. 🙂
