EXTERIOR RESTORATION & FACADE REPLACEMENT

35 EAST 85TH STREET, NEW YORK, NY

 

Type: 

ca. 1958 two-tower twenty-one story concrete structure apartment building with white glazed brick cavity wall facades.

Scope: 

Removal of all exterior masonry including all setbacks and returns, and the installation of continuous backup support. Removal and replacement of steel shelf angles through out. Installation of a new red brick curtain wall with cast stone water tables and a cast stone base. The client's requirement for a facade that blends the economic benefits of modern technology with the more traditional elements of prewar detailing was realized. The result was an elegant blending of what was a postwar modern building with other prewar buildings in the neighborhood.
