This property, situated in Washington Heights, required rock removal to be a viable construction site. Today, it hosts a 6-story, certified passive house building with 20 apartments. Moreover, it contains a medical office with its own interior elevator on the lower two floors.
We built this as a poured concrete, flat slab construction. To further reduce the building’s carbon footprint, all floors have been kept as polished concrete, eliminating the need for additional flooring materials. Most ceilings are exposed concrete, so we did not have to cover them with sheetrock.
