Sounding Out The Skyline
Sound Reducing Glass
The “Clock Tower” in Dumbo
One Main St.
This property was a waterfront industrial warehouse that was converted for luxury residential use. The existing windows were very large, making them hard to open, and in their new life as residents, they faced new issues with noise from the BQE and the Manhattan Bridge.
WindowFix addressed over 500 windows, upgraded balances, fabricated custom sound-reducing glass, and replaced various window parts to extend the life of these windows. We walked through each apartment, a window by window, to identify the needs in each space. This required weighing each sash to account for the added heft of the sound-reducing glass.
All in all, this was a modernization of classic adaptive reuse, facing our famous NYC skyline.
