Intro

This six story pre-war residential condominium was constructed in 1928 and has 54 residential units.  During the building’s LL11 façade inspection many areas of deterioration were found including a partial parapet collapse, unsupported air conditioning units and delaminated slate roof tiles.

Urgent work was required on this job site because of the hazardouse partial parapet collapse. MOA worked quickly with management to coordinate the installation of public safety protection in the form of a sidewalk shed.  In addition, several probes were conducted to ensure the partial parapet collapse was an isolated incident and that the surrounding parapets were structural stable.    Construction documents followed, a contractor selected, the restoration work was successfully completed and the building’s hazardous conditions repaired.

space that could incorporate its current Chicago HQ staff, its current NYC corporate office population and their new departmental program needs.  MOA created a space program to identify how much space they would require.  MOA joined Popular and their RE brokers within Manhattan and Jersey City to evaluate the different spaces available on the market at that time.  Ultimately deciding on two floors within the Financial District of downtown Manhattan where MOA fulfilled their budget and design requirements of a progressive yet timeless space.
