Manhattan Condo Renovation In The Gotham


While we’re often working in dated pre-war buildings with plenty of surprises, this Upper East Side condo renovation took place in a relatively new building, The Gotham. A young family had recently purchased the condo and wanted to renovate the three bathrooms, kitchen, and flooring before moving in. Our goal was to take the strong bones of the developer-build and upgrade with more personalization and space for our clients’ growing home.

Luxury Kitchen Remodel

A client priority of this NYC condo renovation was to open up the kitchen, requiring us to create a pass-through, which we accented with hanging modern Eurofase pendant lights. Clearing the space also required us to remove various unwanted curves and angles from the foyer, which we did in great detail. The glossy Calacatta Verona quartz countertops and backsplash are complemented by a combination of Miralis Simply White cabinets on bottom and creamy, frameless oak Macchiato cabinets up top - creating an overall luxe setting that resonates across the whole condo.

Multiple Bathroom Remodels

Three bathroom remodels were required in this NYC condo renovation, all of which had their own challenges. One of the en suite bathrooms required us to reconfigure the shower and the toilet for preferred placement and a bigger shower space than the prior stall, and moving the shower created some plumbing issues we had to accommodate. 

In the main bathroom, we custom-cut the oversized porcelain tiles, which we then juxtaposed with an intricate Amsterdam Chevron White mosaic pattern on the floor of the new walk-in shower. The double vanity balances out the immaculate but inviting master bathroom design with an organic touch from the natural wood.

See what the client had to say: 

Worked with the Gallery Team to do a full gut renovation of our home. As a young family we wanted a more modern and open layout but needed a practical and functional layout which the Gallery Team worked with us to design. They were very helpful through the entire process and worked with us each step of the way with great responsiveness and care for our project. They were helpful but not pushy through the design process and efficient through the construction process. They maintained open lines of dialogue and we are very happy with the way our home turned out. Thank you Gallery!

Our success stories

Forget about any horror story you have heard about contractors. Stop right here. This is the design-build contractor you want to HIRE. It was a breeze working with Aaron and Jonathan on our apartment combination project. We looked at quiet a few design-build companies and chose Gallery because of the great communication and the fact that they were able to manage material purchasing and product selection for us….They were honest, took responsibility and pride in their work.”

Gallery did a gut renovation of the two extremely dated bathrooms in our 1940 Bayside home. We couldn’t be more pleased with the results! The process from beginning to end was facilitated by their team, who came up with great design ideas and suggestions. They were always on top of the project and responded to our questions/problems quickly, with 100% resolution. I would not hesitate to recommend them!

After my wife and I purchased our West Village condo, we knew a renovation was first on our list of priorities. After a thorough search and meeting numerous firms, we found Gallery Kitchen and Bath and at Gallery we met Eli who from beginning was prepared to go above and beyond other contractors we met to make sure our vision came to fruition. From start to finish, Eli and team were hands on through the decision making process, carefully stepping us through our decisions and their implications.

From the start, we wanted a crew that could do full service (design and build). After looking at some other designs, we really liked what Gallery offered in way of aesthetics. Then, during the entire process, the team was all over it! Issues always come up, but it’s how these guys handled them that make me here writing a positive review. Can’t recommend them highly enough

I enthusiastically recommend Gallery and especially our project manager Eli, who did a superb job renovating our once decrepit 2-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn Heights. The project involved a full kitchen and bathroom renovation, as well as new electrical, refinished floors, new doors, new baseboards, and some rearranged bedroom closets. What is more, when I have them the wrong paint color for my daughter’s bedroom, and the team started to paint that color, they got the paint I wanted and corrected the “mistake” (which has actually been my mistake) and didn’t charge me for that either. I’d choose them again 100 times over and definitely recommend them to anyone considering a similar project.

We interviewed about 8 different companies before hiring a contractor for our apartment renovations. We immediately clicked with Peter, our project manager, and although Gallery was not the cheapest option, we chose them based on their upfront billing format, high client reviews, and depth of knowledge after speaking with Peter and Aaron. We loved how it was a “one stop shop” and were paying one bill, up front. …Everything was very transparent and we could not be happier with the results! Our apartment looks exactly how we imagined. Thank you!!
