Two buildings (672,000 GSF): a 22-story former IRS headquarters and a 17-story curtain wall building at 120 and 110 Church Street, respectively, were combined and converted to create 390 housing units. The second floor serves as a commercial space for a health club.
Nearly half of floor plates were 33,000 square feet, re-designed to contain 25 rental units each. Unit clustering provides greater intimacy in the large complex. The curtain wall and partitioning system were modified to accommodate operable windows for all residential units. Amenities include a 5,500 square foot roof deck with a solarium and basketball court (‘Marvin’s Court’).
When project began, it was the largest conversion in NYC to date. Hundreds of new pipe and duct openings had to be coordinated to support the plumbing/ HVAC systems. First floor slabs on both sides of the building were penetrated and new reinforcement added for the creation of a single, two-story below grade parking garage where mechanical spaces were previously housed.
