  • We find all kinds of artifacts while doing our #adaptivereuse projects. We discover old beer bottles and cans in walls, milk bottles buried in the soil , clay oil vessels, old electrical gear , old postcards and documents , and other architectural ornamentation while renovating these old gems. We clean them up and proudly display the items in our buildings or at our offices. I love it when of our subs proudly presents an archaeological find to us. #thebravitasgroup #architecturalartifacts #feigenspan

  • It’s a very busy Sunday morning at #hillsidesquare. Carl and team are replacing our backup generator and Tom M is modifying cabinets and installing floating shelves for a new tenant. I think people would be shocked what it takes to maintain these 100 year old buildings. We are so fortunate to have a dedicated team available 24/7 to service and maintain our beautiful buildings. We really appreciate their professionalism and responsiveness. Shouldn’t you be in a Bravitas building. Landlords matter! #thebravitasgroup #propertymanagement #montclairnj #generator #floatingshelves

(etched glass sconces, glass enclosed conference room, original stairwell and iron railings, custom vintage chandelier, salvaged wood table, salvaged maple flooring) Our common spaces are used as community art galleries that allow local artists to showcase their latest work while providing our tenants the ability to work amongst creativity. @katedoddstudio is the current artist showing at #hillsidesquare . If you look closely at the photo you will see Kate’s amazing work surrounded by all of the architectural details that were incorporated in Hillside Square a #repurposedchurch . #montclairnj #adaptivereuse #montclairartist #studiomontclair @jackfinnandcompany @sionas_architecture @rhgdesign #katedodd #bravitasart @bravitasart
