Park Lane at Seaview

Owner: The Arker Companies / The Domain Companies

Project Size: $22 million, 130,000 sf

Architect: Hugo Subotovsky Associates

Completion: May 2009—Main Bldg / August 2009—Cottage

  • LEED Silver-equivalent design requirements

  • We provided construction management services for a 104-unit residential conversion of an existing abandoned tuberculosis hospital to a new senior residence.

  • As the project included maintaining the architectural value of a building originally built in 1913 and last altered in 1932, it was eligible for an Historic Preservation Tax Credit from the State of New York.

  • This tax break helped offset the cost of rehabilitating an older building as well as helping to ensure that New York State’s historic buildings were renewed and preserved.

  • The main building, formerly known as the Nurses Residence, provides 96 of the senior housing units.

  • The exterior rehabilitation included a new roof, copper gutters, all new flashing and waterproofing, refurbished skylights and wood windows, and repair and restoration of the stucco façade.

  • Interior restoration included landmark community rooms and library, as well as restoration of landmark doors and plaster work in the corridors.

  • Upper level units respected the existing roof lines and created spaces of significant architectural interest.

  • The Cottage building has 8 units.

  • Work included repairing all of the structural lintels, replacing all of the cracked terra cotta tiles, installing a new roof, new windows, new exterior stairs, and a complete rebuilding of all interior spaces.
