Best Historic Preservation Project 

Clemens Construction Company, Inc. | One City

Project Description

With Clemens Construction Company, Inc. leading the charge, One City – a nationally registered historic building – was converted from a 14-story office building into a high-end residential development with 323 contemporary styled, efficient apartment units maintaining unique original features. To preserve its historic character, the team refurbished all 1,100 original double-hung windows, restored the original decorative façade, and preserved renowned ironworker Samuel Yellin’s monumental cast-iron gates. Inside, drop ceilings, vinyl flooring, and commercial carpeting were removed to expose historic coffered ceilings, marble and travertine columns, ornate plaster, and historic millwork. This project returned this masterpiece to its proper prominence.
