New Tikka Shack Shows the Promise of Adaptive Reuse

Originally a three-story apartment building with a structural firewall through the center, the new Tikka Shack Indian Grub restaurant in Hershey, PA showed just how challenging adaptive reuse can be. And gave the Remodeling team at EGStoltzfus Commercial Construction a chance to shine.

The owner originally planned to demolish the building, but the Derry Township Downtown Core Design Board denied the request, citing the building’s historic character.

With the help of Hershey architect ThYNK design, EGStoltzfus worked with the owner to retool the plans. And we launched a “surgical demolition and reconstruction” accommodating many unexpected conditions as the project proceeded.

Many times, we had to adapt to the conditions we found in the aging structure. But the team persevered, and the new restaurant quickly because a hit.

Industry Experience

Adapting an aging structure for the 21st century can be difficult, with any number of challenges and frustrations. But with over 30 years of experience in adaptive reuse, we have found that a historic building can be full of hidden treasures, just waiting to be discovered. Or rediscovered.

From smaller-scale remodeling projects to complete facility renovations, EGStoltzfus Commercial Construction has a passion for creating human spaces. Places for people to live and work that allow your enterprise to grow into what you envision, yet still offer a return on your investment of time, money, and risk. But more importantly, spaces that embody your purpose. That build companies. Enhance lives. Create communities. EGStoltzfus. BUILDING ONE STORY AT A TIME
