Project: 370 Lenox Ave.

This pre-war style building is located in the heart of Harlem. It was built in 1921 and has 7 stories. The first floor houses retail shops, and the upper floors are apartments.

Right Path fabricated five custom storefronts On Lenox Ave., with fixed windows and doors around the corner on 129th St. This continuity created a tidy appearance with classic lines. The radius window corners match the existing stonework.

Each storefront was crafted from mahogany, with the doors and window sashes being 2-1/4” thick, and featured a very sought after chrome nickel hardware package. The glass was 1” tempered Low-E with Argon gas.

One of the challenges of this project was being very sensitive to the existing, ornate stone trim at the very top of the facade. Another intricate part of this project was that the upper panels had to accept four stone corbels that support an ornate cantilevered stone balcony on the second story. This required very precise field measurements to ensure shop production would be accurate. The storefront fit like a glove.

The lower portion of the facade was comprised of flat panels the entire length of the five storefronts and continued around the corner. The overall look complements the existing structure while giving it fresh appearance.
