RRA converted a 1928,17-story building into luxury
multimillion-dollar condominiums for sale. The building, situated on a 10,092 sq. ft. site along museum mile, consists of two cellar levels which contain electrical and mechanical equipment, storage, laundry and new recreational facilities, a ground floor level which will be used primarily for lobby, medical offices and a superintendent’s apartment plus seventeen floors for residential use all which required major interior reorganization. The site work includes widening gardens along Fifth Avenue, creating gardens along 101st Street building facade, providing ramp access into the building, creating office access at the front and a new marquee at the entry.The client wanted to retain the pre-war feel of the building mixed with modern high-end finished interiors in the kitchens to increase the marketability of these units. The penthouses, which have access to private roof terraces, required a partial redesign to bring it up to par with the rest of the complex.In addition, the firm assisted with the selection of furniture and finishes for the model apartment in which the client will have Corcoran Realty showcase the condominiums.
