The Dauchy Building: Historic Context. Modern Comfort.

Adaptive Reuse of Historic Property

Balzer and Tuck supported a local development company in the adaptive reuse of The Dauchy Building in downtown Troy, New York. A part of a long-term strategic plan to bring new life into this urban setting, the inventive renovation included converting four separate buildings into one four-story, 65,000-square-foot mixed use property rich with history, character, and modern amenities.

“Balzer and Tuck gave the required attention to designing modern living within the context of a historic building. Their vision of the spaces and circulation led to an adaptive reuse that has been very successful for us and the City of Troy, New York.”  – Sonny Bonacio, Bonacio Construction
