This building was constructed by our Team in 2017.  Depot Street Pizza and it’s owners came to us with an idea to create a space for quick and quality food to serve the surrounding tenants.  We started the construction of this tenant improvement in August of 2021.

Depot Street Pizza is a New York style pizzeria located at the Morgan Hill Granary.  We worked with our client to design, develop and build out an existing space into one of the best pizzeria’s in town.

The existing space was taken down to the studs to create space for the massive electric Marra Forni pizza oven, walk in refrigerator and comfortable bar/dining area.  The build out included a refresh of the outdoor patio adjacent to Bike Therapy and The Running Shop and Hops.



The Granary, Morgan Hill, California

Located on a long, narrow site, sandwiched between the railroad tracks and an un-finished section of Downtown, the old Isaacson Granary was the most prominent reminder of this area’s once preeminent agri-business. WMA chose to preserve this piece of the City’s agricultural past, while developing a “gateway” project at the northeast entry to the Downtown. We took the original building, responded to it and developed it into an integrated sustainable structure while adhering to a very limited budget of $2 million dollars.

The goals achieved by designing an adaptive re-use of the existing building while retaining the Granary’s form, structure and foundation, have been immense and in 2007 the Granary received LEED Gold Certification. The once drafty, dark industrial building has become a beacon of green design and once again a thriving part of the community.

The Granary not only houses WMA’s main office but several other businesses as well: Odeum Restaurant, Morgan Hill Times, Golden Eagle Mortgage Group, Publishing Power, Inc., Mark Grisdale-LPL Financial, SMP Tech, Inc., ACTechnical, Gloss Beauty Lounge and The Running Shop and Hops. The property also includes an on-site garden and small orchard, a nod to the agrarian heart of Morgan Hill.

Making Downtown more beautiful where the requirements meet expectations.

The project we were work on was a new office building. The Granary, Morgan Hill enjoyed using our services because it has been in business for 30 years and has gotten pretty skilled at our craft, so this project went smoothly and ended up being just as expected.

Silicon Valley Demo, Morgan Hill

At Silicon Valley Demo, the scope of work was to put in new finishes, new break room and non structural wall. This new break room made a difference for the space in that it made the place feel less empty and vast. A non structural wall was added towards the front of the space to create more privacy and a better sense of space for the lobby.

Meet Raquel Crowell – owner. Raquel has been a local community member and stay at home mom for almost 14 years. While it has been some of the most rewarding years of her life, there was a motivating feeling to do more. Always needing to be flexible and readily available for what her family threw her way, she kept her skills up by taking on several small jobs that allowed her to make her own schedule. These trades have given her the knowledge and foundation that set the stage towards ownership!
She first fell in love with the Morgan Hill location when she celebrated her birthday for a private party and it proved to make a lasting impression. She later visited several times within the next few months for more DIY fun.  Upon learning that there was a business opportunity to acquire AR Workshop in her own backyard the decision was a no brainer. She and her family decided to take a leap of faith and go for it! The timing was right and this was the opportunity that she had been waiting for! The entire family is behind her and they can’t wait to share the fun with you!
