Aurea DevelopmentGut renovation of two South Bronx properties.
Aurea was the gut renovation of two distressed Bronx properties and was one of the most challenging projects that Lemle & Wolff has undertaken. In addition to addressing dangerous structural conditions at both buildings, the company needed to vacate more than 50 tenants and remediate an oil spill that occurred after removing the fuel tank at one of the buildings. Despite these issues, construction was completed six months ahead of schedule and tenants returned to their newly-renovated apartments one year after relocating.
Total units: 85 plus three commercial spaces
Construction contract: $13.25 million
