Claremont Preparatory School

This project entailed the restoration and conversion of a former Lee, Higginson and Company Bank headquarters in the heart of New York’s financial district into a school for 1,000 students grades K-8. Original Neoclassical details were faithfully restored and highlights include a new Olympic length swimming pool and regulation-size rooftop gym and outdoor playground.

In 2006, the New York State Historic Preservation Office awarded OCV with the Private Sector Achievement Award for this project.
