Interior Layout and Exterior Brickwork

Bob reviews some of the new steel framing that's gone up and has a look at the newly sandblasted beams. Bob also summarizes the brickwork that needs to be done on the façade.

Clip Summary

Bob and project manager Chris Vila review some of the new steel framing and sandblasted beams (portions of which are going to be left exposed) inside the warehouse.

The brick exterior dates back to 1835. With 170 years of New York City grime clinging to its surface, the façade must be cleaned carefully, so as to avoid causing damaging the structure.

Jeremy Armstrong of Two Trees Development estimates that about 25 percent of the bricks will need replacement and that the mortar will need to be repointed. The end result will be a façade that is square, plumb, level and structurally sound.
