Tribeca Condo Renovation

Located in the southeast region of Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood, this condo suffered from an outdated look when presented to the Projects team. Working under a tight four-month deadline and in close cooperation with the building board, the challenge here was clear: Execute a modern condo renovation in a pre-war building with limited room for alternations.

Luxury Bathroom Remodel

The renovation began in the master bathroom where the “wet areas” (spaces containing high levels of moisture) had to meet stringent building requirements. In addition, the team had to devote the utmost attention to waterproofing to avoid water damage, as any water that could move past the internal concrete slabs could corrode the materials within; an issue faced by many older buildings in Manhattan.


A Modernized Look

Despite this challenge and a series of rigorous inspections for approval, the team successfully reconfigured the layout to optimize the limited space. While the wet and dry areas were combined before the renovation, the team opted for a more practical layout to provide one large wet area and a distinct dry area.

The wet area now boasts a glass-enclosed shower with a large soaking tub inside; a first for any condo unit within the building. The dry area now showcases a brand-new, six-foot wide custom double vanity and a wall-mounted, lighted mirror.  

Similar to the plumbing in the bathroom, the gas line in the kitchen had to remain in place due to building requirements. While the team kept the existing sink, fridge, and stove, they managed to execute a layout change to make way for more space and storage.


The Transformation

A partition wall was added to create an elongated, L-shaped layout. To balance this reconfiguration, the kitchen’s brand-new, 11-foot breakfast bar island was shifted further from the partition wall, while still maintaining access to the gas line.

The result is a modern, minimalistic kitchen with a flush gas cooktop, ample custom cabinetry, and neutral tones that allow the owner to add their creative flair.

Brand-New Closets and Floors

Working with the owner, new electrical outlets were installed strategically based on the how the home was to be used.

In addition, new master bedroom closets with tiered systems and brand-new white oak floors, stained in a custom gray wash, were installed to complete this condo renovation.

What began as an outdated condo with limited potential, transformed into a sleek, contemporary home through expert coordination with building management, detailed planning with pre-organized checklists, and clever solutions to adjustments along the way.
