Building Highlights

Landmarked neo-classical building located in the Upper East Side on the corner of East 78th Street and Park Avenue.

Prestigious co-op pre-war building designed around 1910 by George and Edward Blum.

Project Highlights

Scope of Project: Façade restoration and roof replacement project. The proposal included replacement of deteriorated masonry, ornamental terracotta and limestone, cutting and pointing of mortar joints, lintel replacement and reinforcement and waterproofing of underlying steel structure and fire escapes. Roof replacement also included reinforcement of the penthouse terrace structure and restoration of the bulkhead finishes. 

FSI's Involvement: FSI coordinated the restoration and preservation of the deteriorated terracotta and limestone ornaments throughout the North and West facades along with the rehabilitation of the masonry at the South, East and courtyard facades. FSI designed the new parapet walls and prepared construction documents for restoration of masonry with techniques compatible with materials present. Coating replacement was coordinated with manufacturers of compatible products accepted by Landmarks Preservation Commission. Deteriorated steel structure underlying the masonry ornaments were reinforced and waterproofed as part of the restoration process. Construction documents were also prepared for the roof replacement which was the final portion of the restoration project. FSI coordinated bidding the project to qualified contractors and provided recommendations.
