712 Broadway is an 8-story landmarked building located in NoHo (North of Houston) historic district. The iron frame, granite and terra-cotta building was constructed as a warehouse in 1893 for the Scholle Brothers. The commercial building designed by Alfred Zucker replaced an 1803 3-story Federal-style mansion, which the Scholle Brothers bought for $88,000 in 1890.
NoHo saw its first development by the first decade of the 19th century when John Jacob Astor acquired a large tract of land between Great Jones Street and Art Street (now Astor Place). From 1820 to 1840 the area developed as a fashionable residential district lined with lavish Federal and Greek Revival style residences. New York University was founded in 1831 in nearby Washington Square.
Morozov provided MEP engineering design and approval services for a loft apartment, working closely with architects and owners to integrate state-of-the-art mechanical systems into the existing historic features of the apartments.
