Project Description:
This is a residential and commercial building marked for the strictest level of preservation. At present, the building has a commercial façade above a partial basement floor with a total area of ca. 1,600 sqm. During the preservation process, the building will undergo a ‘surgical’ process of strengthening and restoration, new interior planning by means of the insertion of modern systems intended to serve the residential apartments and additional construction on the roof. The remaining construction rights were transferred, within the framework of the local urban-planning program, for the construction of a tower on Rothschild Boulevard.
