Located in a Coastal A flood zone, the first floor is a cast-in-place structure raised 6’ above grade that has an end wall designed for wave impact from the East River in the event of a 100-year event. The 2nd floor structure is also reinforced concrete with transfer girders that support bearing wall above in order to create open space at the entry and lobby.
