Bay View Tower Condominium
Staten Island, NY
Situated where the Upper New York Bay flows into The Narrows, 80 Bay Street Landing has stunning views of Manhattan and surrounding waterways. Originally built as an industrial warehouse, the structure was converted to a residential condominium in the 1980’s.
When we first became involved with Bayview Towers Condominium, the building had a decade long backlog of exterior maintenance and leak issues. Exterior maintenance was further delayed after the building was heavily damaged by flooding in 2012 during Hurricane Sandy.
ARC was asked to address deterioration of the concrete facade, deterioration of the balconies and terraces and leaks affecting approximately 20% of the apartment units. ARC oversaw a campaign of repairs, that included installing a fully reinforced liquid applied waterproof coating on the balconies and terraces, extensive concrete repairs, window sealant replacement and installation of a elastomeric coating on the building exterior.
In addition, for the main roof, ARC designed and oversaw the installation of a fully-adhered protected membrane system with 6” of self-ballasted insulation, increasing the insulation value from R10 to R30. The protected membrane system allowed for the additional insulation while maintaining existing heights at door saddles and the 50 skylights and equipment penetrations, saving the building thousands of dollars in rebuilding costs over a traditional modified bitumen system.
