Location: Brooklyn, NY
Completion Date: 2012
This four-story tenement building was repositioned as a mixed-use rental property. Over thirty years of neglect necessitated a gut renovation. The entire façade and wood cornice were renovated, cleaned, and fitted with new windows. Bricks were re-pointed and replaced, wood joists were replaced, and the common stair was rebuilt. The ground level accommodates a Landmarks Preservation Approved storefront with a modern steel cornice; as well as, a duplex basement studio in the rear. The second, third, and fourth floors consist of two bedroom apartments with open layouts and generous storage space. All the rental units were leased within weeks of completion.
