The Knick is a project that converted seven four-story walk-ups into a unified condominium complex. The buildings date from the early 20th century and stood boarded up and uninhabitable for 20 years.
OCV rehabilitated them to provide generous and sustainable living spaces. The units are LEED Homes certified and building amenities include:
-a rooftop lounge
-a fitness center
-on-site bike storage and parking
-remote door answering service and storage for deliveries
This project was a combined renovation and preservation of nine historic buildings. Originally the H. Lawrence & Sons Rope Works, they date from the 1850s and 1930s.
The 317-foot long complex at the western edge of North Brooklyn’s Industrial Business Zone provides light industrial and artisanal workspaces. As the last remaining structure of its kind in Brooklyn it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
In 2009, the project was recognized with two awards, the New York State Historic Preservation Award and a Building Brooklyn Award.
This residence in Harlem is located near St. Nicholas Park. The historic brownstone was both restored and renovated after suffering from fire and subsequent water damage.
Details were meticulously restored to their original condition and the entire brownstone was upgraded with:
-new plumbing and electrical services
-a central air conditioning system
-hardwired with a sound system on the first floor
-wireless ethernet throughout
OCV converted the historic buildings at 55 Warren and 55 Murray Streets into a single address that redefines luxury living in Tribeca.
The renovation addressed the historic preservation of the two facades with completely gutted, fully appointed contemporary interiors. At the center of the unified building is a new, full depth courtyard that brings natural light and air deep into each unit.
