Canal Street – Tribeca, NY

Posted by Admin - November 30, 2012

In the heart of New York’s hip and refined Tribeca area stands a five story building that has been renovated by contractor Mark Dunnett and his extensively talented team at Rosewood Commercial. While Tribeca is known for art galleries and fashionable trendsetters, this one particular building on Canal Street bordering Chinatown was in dire need of exterior restoration and interior rehabilitation.

Fortunately, the Rosewood Commercial team has substantial relationships with the New York City Department of Buildings. This made it possible to unravel multiple building violations caused by previous tenants. The building was awarded a clean bill of health after multiple strategic review meetings with Rosewood.

The project was contracted as “design and build” and had multiple phases spanning over two years:

  • The first phase included a complete demolition and reconstruction of the cellar and first floor to a vanilla box. The structure was sound, but all interior components needed replacement.
  • The second phase included a complete demolition and reconstruction of the second floor. A previous retailer for many years unfortunately left the floor in a haphazard condition. The finished project created an amazing loft apartment space complete with refinished hardwood floors, stone counters, upgraded appliances, gorgeous kitchen cabinetry, and a very spacious living and bedroom area. Large windows that look out the front and rear sides of the building were also refinished.
  • The third phase included a new retail store build-out for a tenant occupying the first floor and cellar. Plans and specifications were completed and all retailer customizations were successfully achieved.
  • The fourth phase included exterior storefront and façade work from street level to the roof overhang eave. The front was in dire need of new applications. The Landmark process was completed for a new “vintage” design. The newly specified wall and window finishes met all of Landmark’s requirements with flying colors.
  • A fifth phase will complete the reconstruction of the third thru fifth floors, including multiple piping and electrical installations.

This complicated job was yet another successful project for Rosewood Commercial in the city of New York. The building owner was so pleased with the work of Rosewood Commercial and commended them on a job well-done.
