The Apthorp (2211 Broadway)
|Location:||New York, NY|
|Client:||Feil Organization / Broadwall Management Corp.|
The Apthorp is a historic condominum building built in 1908 that occupies a full block on the Upper West Side. Designated a landmark in 1969, this 12-story, once apartment building is built around a large interior courtyard and includes features such as arch-headed windows, projecting cornices, a barrel-vaulted entrance and limestone sculptures. The condominium is divided into four sections, each with its own lobby. When the building turned from apartments to mostly condos in 2006, the building owner decided to undergo a restoration of original detailing before reselling.
Vidaris was hired in 2009 to provide building envelope consulting and monitoring, including assessing the main roof, the courtyard, the windows, and providing a Local Law 11 inspection. Later, in 2011, Vidaris was brought on to consult and inspect the roof replacement and cornice replication, as well as to provide an existing window thermal mock-up test.
