Tribeca Loft Conversion, Reade Street, Tribeca, New York City
This Loft Building Conversion in the Tribeca South Historic District of NYC required a complete restoration of all timber, cast iron and exterior limestone and brick exteriors as approved by the New York City Landmarks Commission. Converting the use from storage and commercial to a combination of residential, retail, and commercial required introducing a new central stair and elevator core along with adding two additional floors and bulkheads. All MEP and life safety systems were removed and replaced with new. The Landmarks review required special preservation of the historic ground floor cast iron storefront, retaining historic metal shutters, and approval of the replacement wood window and doors facing the street. The high-end residential apartments will include all modern amenities and meet building code requirements.
