1180 Raymond Boulevard

This project involved conversion of the vacant 35-story art-deco Lefcourt Building, a former office building in downtown Newark that was constructed in 1929, to residential use. The landmark tower was home to many prominent law firms over the years, but had been vacant for a decade prior to Congswell’s conversion .  The conversion resulted in 317 studio, one- and two-bedroom rental units in the 441,000 sq. ft. building. 

VDA provided full consulting services for modernization and reconfiguration of existing gearless passenger elevators (PE1-PE4) to form a four (4) car group elevator system that serves all floors of the building. One of the elevators has the capability of operating as a swing service car with inconspicuous riser feature.  The project was completed in Spring, 2007.
