The Renovation

 Originally built in 1920 as a residence, and converted to a commercial building many years ago, the building has just been under major renovations which was completed August 2010.  Renovations included the expansion of square footage to 6,500 and a handicap accessible  elevator.  While the renovations are new, the building design is not.  We kept the original look of the 1920 Arts & Crafts character, complementing the community's historic architecture.

Some of our upgrades are:

  • ​Renovated Aug 2010
  • Over 2500 SF added for the first and second floor
  • New ADA compliant elevator installed
  • Entire building Handicap Accessible: ramp, bathrooms, area of refuge, front staircase, handicap parking
  • 27 parking spots 
  • 3 new handicap accessible bathrooms installed
  • New Heating-A/C system
  • New roof
  • New Andersen windows in 3/4 of the building
  • 4 new central A/C
  • New main entrance
  • New stairwells (front and rear inside building)
  • New fire alarm system
  • New area of refuge system
  • New gutters
  • New heating element in gutter to prevent ice damn
  • 4 new furnaces
  • New entrance/hallway carpeting
  • New landscaping
  • New doors

​Young Professional Center would like to extend our gratitude to Jonathan Kost, Architect, (203-426-3131) for his  phenomenal design capturing the 1920's era, and creating a design that meshed the original 1920's building with the 1970's and 2010 additions into a building that seemed as if it were built like this since the beginning.

​We would also like to thank Roche Incorporated (203-431-6660) for building with such incredible detail and superb quality.

​On another note, we've had many people ask us about the exterior blue color of the building - it is Benjamin Moore Spellbound, and our painter was Bardhyl Limani, (203-512-3451).

​If we had to do the renovation all over again, we would choose the same professional team.  Thank you all.
