The Park Mansion
320 East 82nd Street
DM Engineers took on a pivotal role in the transformation of The Park Mansion, a historic six-story building originally constructed in 1900 by the renowned architecture firm of Janes and Leo. This architectural gem was reimagined as a luxury condominium complex, offering spacious full-floor 3-4-bedroom residences with an array of amenities, including a lobby attendant, fitness room, private storage, and bicycle storage.
The scope of DM Engineers' involvement encompassed the Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Fire Protection, and Fire Alarm design for the repurposed building, located in the heart of New York City. In terms of HVAC systems, the project featured dedicated variable refrigerant flow units, a perimeter hot water system, exhaust systems, and specialized systems tailored to serve the common areas, social spaces, and fitness room within the complex.
This project was particularly exhilarating due to several distinctive challenges and features. Firstly, the original building's occupancy type presented unique considerations when repurposing it into a luxury condominium complex. Secondly, meeting specific ceiling height requirements posed an architectural and engineering challenge. Lastly, the project's exceptional finish requirements demanded meticulous attention to detail and craftsmanship.
Through their expertise and commitment to excellence, DM Engineers contributed significantly to the successful transformation of The Park Mansion, ensuring that it retained its historic charm while providing modern luxury living spaces in the heart of one of the world's most dynamic cities.
