90 West Street
New York, NY
90 West Street, designed by Cass Gilbert
in 1907, was heavily damaged by fire and debris during the attacks
on September 11, 2001. Façade Maintenance Design is the Professional
of Record for the exterior restoration, which includes the copper
clad mansard roof, terra cotta façade, granite base and the windows.
The work was reviewed by the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission,
New York State Historic Preservation Office and the National Park
Service. The scope of work for the exterior was designed to allow
the interior work to be performed concurrently, thus shortening
the construction time and allow the project to be successful. Façade
Maintenance Design produced accurate building drawings which indicated
each stone prior to performing the survey. New terra cotta, custom
brick and granite replaces original materials in kind.
