The Craftsman

In 2018, the owners of the 1923 Lane Mortgage Building at 8th and Spring Streets began plans for the adaptive reuse of a vintage office building. Six years later, the now century-old structure has reopened as an apartment-hotel fusion called The Craftsman.

Downtown-based architecture firm Omgivning designed the project, which converted the upper floors of the building into 110-short-term rentals, while retaining existing ground-floor retail and restaurant space. San Francisco-based Sonder, which runs short-term apartment-hotel projects, has signed on to operate the upper floors, which features units as small as 380 square feet in size.
