Make Over in Midtown

Makeover in MidtownLocated in the heart of Midtown Manhattan the 60 year old Emory Roth & Sons designed building at the southwest  corner of 47th St. & 5th Ave. has been transformed. Kohn Pederson Fox  Architects worked closely with owner Axel Stawski to develop an architectural theme that included a complete re-cladding of the existing horizontal brick ‘ribbons’ and wedding cake setbacks, removal of limestone to create corner glass offices and an efficient aesthetically attractive retail/street  level. Facade Technology provided Polar White laminated glass panels, with custom aluminum extrusions and  sills, including a stainless steel nosing. The result is a stunning transformation of a very high profile building.

Courtlandt Crescent

Courtlandt CrescentLocated in the Melrose Commons Urban Renewal Area in the South Bronx, Courtlandt Crescent is the second phase of a redevelopment by Phipps Houses that began on the adjacent site with Courtlandt Corners. Designed under the NYC Quality Housing Program, the building’s setbacks and bays provide a residential scale. Brick colors and patterns address contextual issues, while Metal Panels and Sun Shades provide a contemporary architectural expression, together they create a welcoming residential character. The 217 studios to three bedroom units have generous layouts and large windows to provide abundant natural light, and are arranged around a courtyard created by the two buildings. Courtlandt Corners is participating in the Enterprise Green Communities Initiative and NYSERDA Multifamily Performance Program.
