Project Size
81,000 gsf
This project consisted in the conversion of a former truck garage into 84 luxury residential apartments and 8,000 sf of retail space. To admit legal light and air into the interior apartments, an atrium was cut out of the old garage, open to the sky, with most of the old structural elements left standing in place. The floor area that was taken out to create the atrium allowed for the addition of two floors. The 20 penthouse units have at least one fireplace, and some have two. Many ceilings in the six-story building are 15 feet high. The lobby has Art-Deco style vaulted arches. And the townhouses have private ground-level terraces. The glass-backed elevators face out into the atrium.
