Structural and Architectural Notes ~
- Building was originally built with large concrete foundations and a steel-frame super structure (using original Carnegie steel), with brick surrounding walls, concrete buttresses, and timber floor and roof diaphragms (all old-growth timber, the main floor made of real 2"x16” joists)... classic quality!
- Major seismic retrofit based on current engineering codes (plans available for viewing). The seismic retrofit included roof/floors anchoring to the exterior walls, all roof/floor diaphragm reinforcement with structural steel/wood, 42-feet deep micro-piles (using German SAS Stressteel specialty rolled-steel rods), and 8 lines of 45-feet tall steel frames, amongst other elements.
- Townhomes are equipped with substantial double-wall soundproofing and thermal insulation feature (double 2x8 walls with 2-inch air gap, filled with sound and thermal insulation, with two layers of drywall on each side).
- Custom-engineered high-capacity invisible recirculating fan to keep uniform temperature for the 30-foot main living and master loft areas, as well as extra thermal insulation between each of four floors within unit itself, maintaining comfortable temperature at each separate level.
- Many original and historic architectural features, such as original exposed steel/brick/concrete/timber elements, two 15-foot tall arched original stained-glass windows (fitted with central mahogany operable panels), wainscoting, light fixtures, arched plaster ceilings, original building timber paneling and historic window within living room walls, original ceiling skylights, double-sash windows and doors, etc.
