Located with private docks in Newport Harbor with views of Lido Island, the five-story reinforced concrete structure boasts views of Newport Harbor. Originally constructed in the 1960’s, the structure was extensively retrofitted to change the use of the top three stories from office to spacious residential living. The top story was removed and custom floating radiused stairs were added to the top-level two-story units. A dynamic analysis was performed to strengthen the lateral system and utilized carbon fiber and shotcrete. Helical piers were used to strengthen existing caissons.
