Pre-War Renovations In NYC

Surprises when renovating a NYC apartment are common, but the chances issues arise during renovation of a pre-war property are significantly higher. Due to their age, these seasoned properties typically have extensive owner history spanning 100 years-plus, making questionable handyman work or outdated materials likely and pre-reno inspections a must. To accommodate, our in-house team of project liaisons handles inspections, permits, and testing on our clients’ behalf, as all specifics are then executed by the respective project manager to ensure LPC preservation requirements are met and the historic details that make your home unique become illuminated amongst modern features.

Townhouse & Brownstone Renovations In NYC

Similar to pre-war renovations, townhomes and brownstones require significant work when renovating, due to their extensive lifespan and potential for underlying issues. With certain townhouses and brownstones in NYC dating back to the early 1830s, many homes we renovate have been updated several times over before coming to us, often without proper oversight from agencies like the Department of Buildings. As a result, new buyers looking to gut renovate their townhome uncover disjointed elements, insufficient electrical, outdated plumbing, and asbestos lining the interior of their walls. To uncover such issues, our project management team walks all of our spaces prior to design, probing as needed to identify underlying issues and working with our project liaisons to create a plan to rectify - all before finally guiding efforts to rebuild appropriately as our clients best see fit.

Apartment Combinations In NYC

Combining two NYC apartments presents numerous challenges, highlighting the critical role of effective construction and site management for a smooth process. From navigating building board approvals to understanding wet over dry restrictions, each step demands meticulous attention. These include limits on relocating utilities like bathrooms and kitchens, along with complexities related to maintaining multiple entrances to comply with fire codes and optimizing interior staircase dimensions. Furthermore, such projects entail extensive planning and construction phases, typically spanning 5-6 months for planning and 5-7 months for construction, with costs varying based on floor-plan reconfigurations and pre-existing site conditions.

Full Renovation Of Pre-war Co-op In Manhattan | 1035 5th Avenue

Our recent renovation at 1035 5th Avenue found us in the middle of quintessential Manhattan. Overlooking Central Park, this beautiful Italian Renaissance Palazzo co-op is located on Fifth and 85th street, just down the street from The Met. When our client purchased this 4,000 square foot pre-war property, the space hadn’t been updated in more than 50 years. The vision for this renovation called for a complete design overhaul of the extensive space, while incorporating many of the prior architectural elements and elegant marble accents, while also creating an additional bathroom and powder room. While the results speak for themselves, the client’s glowing praise for our full-service approach went a long way. View full renovation before and after.

Manhattan Condo Renovation At The Chelsea Mercantile | 252 Seventh Ave

In this sizable Manhattan renovation, we overhauled a combined two-unit condo in The Chelsea Mercantile, a 19-story pre-war building in Chelsea. Our clients, a couple with three small children, aimed to blend modern comfort with historic charm in their enlarged 252 Seventh Avenue residence. They sought a more open, functional layout, which required innovative structural planning. Central to the renovation was redefining the kitchen's placement and converting part of the original living area into a new third bedroom. Significant attention was also given to upgrading three bathrooms, with careful consideration of finishes, trims, lighting, and ceilings to enhance the overall living experience.
