This building's truly seen it all, and so many elements that have always made Deep Ellum and the CGB special will be woven into the fabric of this restoration. Once open, locals will get to discover new building-wide amenities, from creative lounge spaces to shared conference rooms, outdoor patio areas, a state-of-the-art VR Lab, coworking, and retail space. Tenants of Continental Gin will get to feel the magic of what happens when the past meets the future just by coming to work each day.
