To transform this 1890 store-and-loft building into a contemporary three-unit condominium, its Renaissance Revival facade was repaired and restored, including cast-iron columns and wrought-iron fire escape baskets, while details that had been lost to history, like the original wood-and-glass storefront and metal cornice, were recreated from historic photographs. While the outside was preserved, the inside was completely transformed with three distinctive condominium units: a 4,000 square-foot, three-story maisonette with a double-height industrial-inspired window wall looking onto a private garden, a 4,000-square-foot duplex unit, and a 4,500-square-foot penthouse with exclusive roof deck and private terrace. Every unit features large open spaces and original brick walls that have been sandblasted in a subtle homage to the historic sandblasting company that previously occupied the building. The clean, spacious interior design provides a counterpoint to the highly textured industrial surface, prominently featuring wide-plank oak floors and large stone slabs, including bluestone and marble.
