The luxurious Ansonia Hotel located on Broadway between 73rd and 74th Street, is an 18-story Beau-Art style New York City landmark that converted to condominiums in the 1990’s. Kelmar was commissioned to gut renovate a two bedroom apartment on the 15th floor.
Being forewarned of the building’s strict regulations, we demonstrated our team approach with the building management by recommending, then seeking approval of our window replacement contractor. We achieved their approval and were able to save the owner 50% over the building’s window contractors.
New electrical service was installed to accommodate new loads required for the electrical and mechanical demands. Architectural finishes included rosewood flooring with Wenge wood borders and inlays, custom millwork, decorative plastering, stenciling and Chinese wall covering. Truly a “high-end” residence, the project retained the original design details of oval rooms, decorative mouldings and cornices.
