22nd Street Townhouse
New York, new york
This gut renovation of a Chelsea Townhouse falls within one of New York’s most sought after landmark neighborhoods. While working within the landmark restrictions, yet taking full advantage of the zoning rights for this site; this renovation of a former SRO rooming house included adding a newly excavated cellar, a new rear addition and a new rooftop terrace and penthouse space. After careful evaluation of the existing structure and anticipated renovation costs, we elected to replace the stairs and all the floor joists providing a new and sound structure and a unique opportunity to create a new translucent light well which brings added light to the middle of this single family home. A garden level floor thru apartment provides the added possibility for future income.
