TD Bank
New Haven, CT
H2L2 Architects and Planners
  • After demolishing an existing two-story retail space, ESRT constructed a new bank branch within a 100-year old historic building in downtown New Haven, CT.
  • The existing building structure – comprised of a structural steel frame with concrete joist terra cotta tile in-fill – could not support the loads required by the Bank’s operations and presented unique challenges for the Project Team.
  • Substantial structural modifications were required to support a new vault, banking equipment and new stairs. New stairs were entirely suspended from the structural steel columns at the third floor level.
  • New black granite and limestone, new storefront windows and glass entrance doors update the building’s pre-war façade. Interior finishes include marble flooring, Level 5 finish on walls and ceilings, intricate soffit details, millwork paneling, and floor-to-ceiling granite and marble in the vestibule. Glass sidewalls on the stair feature ornamental stainless steel handrails
  • Disciplined job-site work procedures and regular communications ensured that residents living in the 14 residential floors above the bank were not impacted.
