Tandem completed the restoration of a 12,000-square foot historic building in Lakeview. Working closely with our Client to restore the original historical character of the building, we delivered 12 modern dwelling units, ranging from 500-1,100 square feet. The building had gone through a lengthy foreclosure and, with entire sections of the roof missing, the interior of the building had been exposed to the elements for quite some time. The project consisted of a complete gut remodel, requiring our team to rebuild large sections of the structure that were either completely missing or rotted. To bring the historical elements back to life, we refinished the carved oak staircase and polished the Carrara marble steps, walls, and mosaic tile floor at the entrance. Within the units, all the windows, mechanical systems, drywall, and interior finishes were replaced. The project was successfully completed in seven months to meet tenant lease deadline.
