Gertler & Wente Architects prepared design and construction documents for a 32,000 sf, 8-story addition for residential use, and the conversion of the upper six stories from commercial to residential. Considerable coordination with consulting engineers allowed the addition with only reinforcing the upper floors structural columns avoiding new foundation work. The first floor lobby was reconfigured to accommodate separate entrances for commercial and residential.
