There’s a new building in New York City’s Financial District that’s taking design cues from magnificent buildings of the past. The 11-story structure, located on 19th Street, houses a number of high-end condominiums, and features a granite base and banding of terra cotta at each floor to accent its curtain wall architecture.
The building was constructed by J Companies, a private developer, and began receiving new residents in the spring of 2008.
The project involved:
- Installation of traditional scaffolding to the second story of the building
- Installation of swing scaffolding to reach higher elevations
- Installation of all of the exterior granite and terra cotta
- Installation of planter walls in the lobby and planters outside the building
- Construction of concrete block partitions in the basement
- Installation of concrete block backup for stonework and terra cotta on the first floor
