This was an existing 4-story building built in the early 1900s that housed retail on the first floor and was abandoned on the top floors. The entire building was gutted and renovated. The stairwell wall had to be jacked up from the foundation due to settling issues. We raised the roof slightly and created another floor at the top. The roof system we chose was unique as we essentially used steel bar joists turned upside down so we would have a flat ceiling but not be able to see the raised roof from the street, which wasn’t allowed due to historical purposes.
