A Pair of Restored Loft Buildings Join Together in the Meatpacking District
In Manhattan’s Meatpacking District, two adjacent buildings from the late 1800s – an Italianate-style warehouse and a vernacular-style factory – were combined and restored in their entirety. Although built separately, the two buildings had common unifying façade elements, such as a common cornice. The final renovation includes a complete restoration and unification of the front façade, a new metal and glass canopy similar to those commonly seen throughout the neighborhood, and new roof terrace secreted behind the top story of the historic facade.
