215 Sullivan Street

New York, NY

This Greenwich Village project involved the restoration of a 1892 Victorian-Gothic building designed by Calvert Vaux. The 4-story brick and brownstone building was originally constructed as the Sullivan Street Industrial School, then used for years by the nonprofit Children’s Aid Society.

The new superstructure system in the existing building is comprised of light gauge metal joists spanning to new steel members pocketed into the existing masonry walls. Silman’s work included a roof replacement and the design of a new rear terrace.

The existing historic building connects to a new 7-story structure to the south, which uses cast-in-place concrete and a mini-pile foundation. Silman re-framed floors in the existing building at elevations to match the new building.

The joined buildings contain high end condominiums with upper-level terraces and a cellar level with parking and shared spaces.
