134 Broadway in Brooklyn, NY is the renovation of an existing building from the 1930s. This South Williamsburg property is neighbor to Peter Luger Steakhouse, the Williamsburg Savings Bank, the Williamsburg Bridge and the “Lost Time” mural. The building contains a detailed masonry façade with ornamentation at the windows, balconies and entryways. The ground floor entrances are framed by stone porticos that provide balconies for the third floor. The cornice is stone designed in a Roman style with articulated dentils throughout. The completed building will provide 26,175 SF of gross area for commercial use. The building consists of six stories plus a cellar.
The renovation includes a new lobby at the commercial office space entry and a renovated elevator to provide access to a new rooftop terrace. The terrace provides a panoramic view of Manhattan and Brooklyn. Each floor of the building is renovated to accommodate a commercial tenant. The renovation at each floor includes a new kitchen, conference room, phone booths and bathrooms. The design is the insertion of a modern palette into a former bank building.
