Sciame is the Construction Manager responsible for the gut renovation and restoration of this high-end residential building, located in the Tribeca South Historic District. The existing five-story building (originally a warehouse built in 1861) features a facade with three rows of 10 arched windows on the ground floor, third floor and fifth floor with a central curved arch extending about six feet above the roof line.

The renovation consists of 9 residential units, two elevators and commercial space on both the ground and basement floor. The building’s facade will undergo a thorough restoration of its original marble and cast-iron elements and include new cast iron storefront infill components. The staircases will be relocated to correspond to the new layout of the residential space. Furthermore, the project calls for the addition of a two-story penthouse, raising the structure’s height to 97-feet.

The penthouse will have a rooftop terrace (front and back), floor-to-ceiling windows and a curtain wall of glass and blackened steel. The first floor of the addition will feature one and a half bedrooms, a kitchen with a pantry/laundry room, a dining and living room, a private elevator and a staircase to the seventh floor. The top (seventh) floor will consist of a master bedroom and master bathroom, a private living room and an additional rooftop terrace. The facade of the penthouse will consist of concrete panels.

September Update: 131 Duane Street. More progress over at 131 Duane Street - 🚧
