EXTERIOR RESTORATION & FACADE REPLACEMENT
900 FIFTH AVENUE, NEW YORK, NY
900 Fifth Avenue is a circa 1960 twenty-one-story residential building with a concrete frame and built with a white-glazed brick curtain wall. It houses medical facilities at the ground level and is located in the Upper East Side Historic District.
Our project at 900 Fifth Avenue consisted of the complete removal and replacement of all the exterior masonry, including the parapet walls and steel shelf-angles. The building’s public and private roof systems were replaced with new paved walking surfaces. Additionally, a new railing system was designed to both comply with current code and reflect the original.
Since 900 Fifth Avenue is located in the Upper East Side Historic District, our work included multiple presentations to the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission to ensure the new white clay-coated brick matched the appearance of the original glazed brick.
