StoneLite® natural stone panels are a great exterior cladding option for high end multi-family residences. StoneLite® panels are not only an attractive and affordable alternative to dimensional stone but they allow the architect’s vision to be realized without the cumbersome difficulties associated with other cladding options.
BARCLAY TOWER – MANHATTAN
Approximately 51,000 sq. ft. of StoneLite® limestone panels were installed on the exterior. The majority were 5’x5′ with a 12″x12″ bullnose “V” running the full height of each panel, but the pieces only weigh 130 lbs., including the attachment system. Lower levels feature panels fabricated with reveals, ornate limestone cornices on the 8th level and limestone column covers and pilasters for the upper floors.
“The StoneLite® system allowed us to realize the design intent for the building while completing the exterior facade significantly faster than would have been possible with solid dimensional stone. We are quite pleased with the result,” said Sal Puccio, Glenwood Management Corp. VP of Construction.
