This project is located at Sixth Avenue (Avenue of the Americas and 19th Street), though it was only a renovation it required filing with the Landmarks Preservation Commission before being filed with the Department of Labour. After research of the original architectural drawings for the buildings, drafting it in CAD, comparing it against the existing then creating a hybrid of the proposed we succeeded. Though the plan was expected to go through a phased construction sequence, because the building was purchased by another owner immediately afterwards we completed only the ground floor. Although little design work was involved, learning how to maneuver between the different agencies governing the built environment in Manhattan was a productive and fast-paced learning experience.
