Located on the grounds of the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in New York City, the Enclave at the Cathedral is among the city’s most holy real estate. The new residences sit on the area that formerly housed the masons’ stone sheds which held the granite used to construct the Cathedral. With respect to this, the facade is composed of a series of concrete ribs. It features two towers which are separated by the entrance to the cathedral’s transept and over 10,000 square feet of amenities in an attempt to draw the residents together. The 428 rentals in the 15 story building will help subsidize the maintenance and construction of the unfinished 123-year-old cathedral, known as the largest in the world, by providing it $5 million a year for the duration of the 99-year lease.
With three locations in Metro New York, Kenseal Construction Products was a sound choice to supply specialty construction materials for this high-profile project. James Santana, Kenseal Sales Representative, worked closely with a valued customer to supply Dow Corning 795, Nomaco Sof Rod, Newborn sausage guns, and Albion spatulas for the curtain wall of the Enclave. Kenseal is known for developing relationships with our customers and taking a hands-on approach to ensure the job finishes on time and on budget. This project was no exception. Throughout the job, our customer needed product quickly and on-site early. James personally arranged for 25 cases of Dow Corning 795 to be on site by dawn to help the contractor keep the job on schedule!
The project was a great success, one of which Kenseal took great pride to be part of!
