Designed by the prolific Upper West Side architect George F. Pelham for the developer Joseph H. Davis, this building was constructed in 1906 as a small multiple dwelling (flats) and once known as the Albea.

Located on the north side of West 93rd Street ninety-eight feet east of Riverside Drive, this six-story building faced in red brick with ironspot headers and stone trim is seventy-five feet wide and dumbbell-shaped in plan. The facade is capped by a modillioned metal cornice. An original wrought-iron fire escape is located at the center of the facade.

The owners retained Morozov in their bid to renovate and reposition the building as an upmarket rental property steps away from the Riverside park.

Engineering  scope included gut renovation of all vacant apartment units and building systems upgrade. A new high efficiency condensing boiler plant was designed to replace an outdated (once coal-fired) steam system. To fully take advantage of the condensing boiler efficiencies,  all new hydronic radiators were selected around low water temperatures.

Variable speed pumps were selected for low flow, wide delta-t of the water to minimize motor horse power.  Domestic water was upgraded with indirect water storage tanks fed by boilers via plate and frame heat exchangers.

Morozov team had to work around existing occupied apartments to minimize disruption to tenants.

Morozov provided MEP engineering design and approval services for all mechanical, plumbing and electrical systems.
