This historic ‘skyscraper hospital’ in Brooklyn has been refashioned into 17 luxury condominium residences. The Polhemus Residences is a 52,707-sf adaptive reuse, renovation, and restoration in the Cobble Hill Historic District Extension of Brooklyn. The enterprise converted the former Polhemus Memorial Clinic (1897), designed by the architect Marshall Emory, into 17 deluxe condominium residences. The project team, led by BKSK Architects, maintained the existing historic French Renaissance façade while completely shifting the interior program to meet modern high-end residential market needs. The project won a Silver Award in BD+C’s 2020 Reconstruction Awards.
Congrats to the project team for this award-winning project! WSP, Fortis Property Group, Skyline Engineering and Busa Builders
