Construction is underway at our townhouse renovation on the Upper West Side on both the roof and the basement.
The existing roof was a combination of a small dormer, bulkhead and vents, which we’re now demolishing to create a new full floor with an expanded private landscaped roof terrace.
In the cellar level, we are excavating a lower level from the uneven bedrock, which requires pouring a thin slab of concrete with waterproofing to even things out. After this is complete, a 24" mat slab will be poured to act as the foundation for the structure.
Swipe to see the current view from the site as our colleagues at Think Construction install the new framing and excavate the new basement.
