East 62nd Street Historic Mansions

East 62nd Street Historic Mansions
For my extensive work in conservation and preservation, this technology is remarkable because – with outdoor units on the roof and tiny pipes connecting the indoor units – architectural integrity of my legacy buildings will be preserved.

The East 62nd Street Historic Mansions in New York underwent a renovation, shifting from outdated homes to high-end rental apartments. Interior renovations restored historically significant rooms to their original grandeur. Behind the walls, the renovation was all about sustainable design and going green. When it came to HVAC, that meant VRF from Mitsubishi Electric – a system that would also meet the needs of future residents without damaging the building’s 130-year-old architecture. Download the PDF below to read more. You’ll hear from the director of facilities, contractor and architect, and see photos of the homes and equipment.
