THE BRAVITAS GROUP 105 Grove Street, Suite 5, Montclair, NJ 07042 (973) 783-8700 info@bravitas.com

BrassWorks, located at 105 Grove Street in Montclair, NJ, combines modern amenities with faithful restoration of the building’s original 1930’s architectural details. The site was for many years home to the family-owned George Rutledge Etched Brass Works company that manufactured brass-etched business signs and plaques, as well as artistic creations such as desk sets and etched portraits. Prior to its conversion into office space in 2006, the building functioned as a warehouse for auto parts.

Today, the building is filled with a diverse group of high quality tenants and features an art gallery displaying the works of local artists. It is in a prime location near shops and restaurants, and within walking distance of the Montclair Walnut Street train station from which one may catch New Jersey Transit’s Midtown Direct train. The building also features on-site parking.

  • Fourteen years ago, we did our first adaptive reuse building. In 2006, Jack F @jackfinnandcompany,  John R @john_m_reimnitz_architect_pc  and I bought a derelict former brass sign manufacturing building at 105 Grove, Montclair and dubbed it BrassWorks . All the amazing architectural details had either been painted over or boarded up. We fell in love with the massive heavy timber columns, steel windows and original brickwork. Working as a team we restored the building to its original grandeur and designed the common corridors as community art gallery space. The uniqueness, history and location has made this one of our most popular buildings. #thebravitasgroup @bravitasart #montclairnj #adaptivereuse #repurposedbuilding #brassworksongrove
