Evansville Pastry Factory Becomes Tasteful Housing

Architectural Renovators transforms Evansville’s former Nabisco bakery into modern industrial apartments.

Evansville Nabisco AR Lofts

Home Sweet Home

If you’ve ever dreamed of living in a former cookie factory, AR Lofts in Evansville could bake your dreams crumb true. Constructed in 1894 for the Marsh-Scantlin Bakery, the building served for several years as a regional bakery for the National Biscuit Company – later renamed Nabisco. However, most residents remember the angled brick building as the home of Geiger Moving and Storage, which occupied the site for nearly a century.

Today, the factory spaces that churned out sweets and snacks have been converted into 23 striking modern industrial apartments featuring exposed brick walls and spiral ducts, original hardwood flooring, and private balconies. Each apartment features a unique floor plan with 16’ ceilings and 12’ custom cabinets. For a dash of extra fun, studio apartments include custom built-in Murphy beds. Ground level retail space includes, appropriately enough, 2nd Language patisserie, an artisan bakery specializing in French-style donuts.

The transformation is the latest in a series of projects by Architectural Renovators targeting historic properties in downtown Evansville, including the 1938 Greyhound Station, 1882 Owen Block, and 1934 Peters-Margedant House.

The two-year renovation project wrapped up earlier this year. For additional details and leasing information, visit Architectural Renovators’ website.
