Following the sale of a historic Manhattan townhouse at 29 Downing Street, the new owners have commissioned a restoration of the structure’s facade and the installation of a new entryway to the ground floor storefront. Completed in 1829, the townhouse measures 3,480 square feet and was constructed on land once owned by Aaron Burr, the third Vice President of the United States.
The current wood doors of the property date back to updates in the 1940’s and are comprised primarily of metal and glass components. The proposed new storefront entry would introduce wood elements and replace the existing signage and lintels. Re-ad architect is responsible for the design revisions.
The door to the residence would also be replaced. Above, new double-hung wood windows would be installed with existing sills and dimensions maintained.
The completion date and duration of construction were not specified in the new proposals. Details were also not available pertaining to possible updates or renovations within the structure.
