Northeast - Commercial / Mixed Use, Adaptive Re-Use
Together with Normandy Development, Plaza oversaw the complete restoration and renovation of the building which included the conversion of floors 3 through 6 and floors 4 through 7 (6 floors total) at 38 East 19th Street (these are contiguous floor levels in the conjoined space) into the core and shell of loft-style commercial office space. The project also entailed the construction of a new 1,800 square foot office lobby on 19th Street historic entrance for the office floors and a new rooftop amenity space.
The scope encompassed the construction and installation of 2 new 4-stop elevators located in a prominent location along the east wall of 888 Broadway, which is the ABC Store. The elevators have glass front doors with a glass panel in the front hoistway above the doors extending up to the ceilings.
A new office lobby was constructed off of 19th Street to serve the new office floors and added penthouse. This entailed lowering a portion of the building structure, adding a new storefront, elevators, MEP systems, and completing new structure for the penthouse. Additional work involved: the addition of a steel structure penthouse to the building structure, including all structural reinforcement; replacing a series of 100-year old skylights and rebuilding the structure, as much of the existing structured needed replacement, and installed all modern skylights all while the building was occupied; facade maintenance and repair; elevator modernization and new HVAC system throughout; and the construction of new core toilet rooms, core electric, telecom closets, and mechanical AHU rooms. A rooftop generator was installed. Floors 2-6 consisted of the repair and cleaning of the existing single pane window sashes with insulated units, while leaving the existing frames of the landmark building in place.
