Case Study Project Overview

The six story Hecht Warehouse was originally built in 1937. The building features glass block extensively, so we were honored to be a part of the redevelopment of the historic property.

Our Process

It was important to maintain the historic elements of the Hecht Warehouse. We were tasked with developing a glass block design to match the original glass block from the late 1930’s. To meet the specs, we used a Type S “Custom Color” mortar, as well as the custom block, to maintain the historic aesthetic of the building.

  • Approximately 28,000 custom glass blocks
  • Custom colored mortar
  • Maintain historic integrity


“GBA Products has a great group of people that back the product. From the jump, it was easy to get the information needed especially dealing with the difficulties of a Zero Lot Line Community. Made my job easy when GBA put together a proposed materials needed list together for me to help. When the opportunity arises again, I know I will not hesitate to reach out to this great team.”

“As a specialized mason, GBA was more knowledgeable and more professional in that genre of masonry than anyone else. Their staff was very professional and provided all required information in a timely fashion. The quality of work exceeded our expectations! They coordinated well in the field with the General Contractor and our foreman.”

Rick D’Aprile, Executive Vice President Rad and D'Aprile, Inc.

“When we started working with GBA they took our design, enhanced the features and provided a world class product. We are already working on another resort with GBA and we look forward to many more to come.”
