As part of New York's expanding portfolio of mixed-use residential construction, Ultimate 348 is a hybrid of retail on the ground floor with condominium offices on the 2nd through 6th floors.

This project, located at 348 West 14th Street, is a renovation of an existing wood joist-framed building. As per New York City’s building codes, residential space on the site is maximized. To accommodate the necessary residential requirements, several floors were added onto the existing building, which required reinforcing the existing structure.

Additionally, the brick façade was removed and replaced with a contemporary glass and steel update, which is a visual contrast to the adjacent red brick and white stone buildings.
