There is something so very exciting about construction. It’s exhilarating for me to walk onto a construction site and see my design ideas a reality. All these months sketching, hard-line computer drawing, selecting finishes, coordinating with the team through the ordering process and finally, it’s there, on site, in 3 dimensions. It’s great!

This past week, after 2 years in the making, through the real estate downturn, after extensive changes in scope, function and finishes, a rental unit property has finally come to fruition. I’m looking forward to sharing a grand opening party with the other team members who have been on the journey with me: the client/developer, the architect, the construction manager, the project manager and my team of NYC Interior Designers. We’re always very much aware that these apartments become home for hundreds of New Yorkers. Located in Long Island City, we sought to create apartments that are comfortable and beautiful; Recreation spaces that excite and inspire. From out of the dirt, I like to think that we succeeded.
