The Spice Warehouse

Local Law 11 & Building Conversion

Built in 1895, the building was originally served a warehouse for the spice trade. Today, this enchanting building which boasts a Beaux Arts façade is home to 13 luxury residential condominiums. The building conversion restored magnificent features such as the original arched windows and cornice, a testament to the grandeur of the past.

Our extensive scope of work entailed a complete façade and interior gut renovation in order to construct multi-million-dollar loft apartments with private entrances from a key-locked elevator. FirstService Project Management gave the façade a facelift, replaced the windows and custom built the cornice to match the original one.

After all the commercial tenants vacated, we demolished the entire interior, providing contractors with a blank canvas. Within three months, all the apartments were framed, plumbing was roughed out, and electric was in place. Even with minor weather-related delays, our project was completed by the deadline. The overhaul of the building was a success as evident by the quick sale of all 13 apartments within a four-month period.
