Located at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge, this luxury residential complex involves the reconstruction of an historic 19th century mercantile landmark building. The building was enlarged to include spacious terrace apartments that provide panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline. Originally a three-story building, final design included an additional three floors, as well as retail and parking at street level, for a total of 40,000 square feet.

Restoration for Adaptive Reuse
The historic facade was restored and a conversion added a three-story stacked addition to the rear of the building, making room for residential units with spacious terraces. Hidden from the street, the addition expands the living space while maintaining the building’s appearance as a historic structure. The building is founded on deep footings including concrete piles, reinforced concrete pile caps and grade beams. The structural system is a steel moment frame building with composite floor construction.
