THE BRAVITAS GROUP 105 Grove Street, Suite 5, Montclair, NJ 07042 (973) 783-8700 info@bravitas.com

The Wilson is located in the heart of Caldwell’s Central Business District; it is a short walking distance to over 20 restaurants, shops, galleries, coffeehouses and the bus to NYC.

The conversion of the building will transform the space into retail and professional offices of varying sizes and layouts. The renovation will keep the beautiful architectural bones of the exterior intact and create a splendid conference room for tenants’ exclusive use.

The building’s common areas will feature a community art gallery and exhibition space for local artists to use on a pro bono basis. This provides a welcoming environment and dynamic entrance for tenants and their visitors, enhances connectivity with the community, and maximizes the use of energy and resources by utilizing space for multiple purposes.

Currently leasing, the building will be ready for occupancy in March 2020.

  • In all of our #adaptivereuse projects we like to leave many of the original building elements exposed . In the new north stairwell at #thewilsoncaldwell we decided not to Sheetrock the exterior walls in order to allow  future occupants to see the original layers of 100 year old masonry work . As you can see by the photo the walls were built with brick, Terra Cotta , reinforced concrete , plaster and with some infill of new CMU block . This stairwell is in contrast of the clean Sheetrocked look of the new south stairwell. Jack F, Lance H and I constantly debate what should be covered up and what should we keep exposed. I am sure some folks would think leaving old raggedy jaggedy  nasty walls uncovered was a mistake or an effort to save money;  but it is totally intentional and thought through.

  • Lucky Luke @lucky_luke_h.i_llc trimming out the stairwells at #thewilsoncaldwell . Not an easy task to scribe trim against an uneven terra cotta wall . Everyday I marvel at the talent and skills of our team . #thebravitasgroup @jackfinnandcompany #trimcarpentry #finishcarpenter #caldwellnj
  • This is what we love about @wag__inc . In 2 days they tore out the old sidewalk , leveled all the sidewalk bricks, prepped the area and poured a new sidewalk at #thewilsoncaldwell . The reason we select our subs is because of quality, responsiveness and likability. (Positive attitude matters as well as applying the “no jerk” rule to the people we work with) #thebravitasgroup @jackfinnandcompany #concretefinisher #newsidewalk #caldwellnj
  • A beehive of activity happening at #thewilsoncaldwell in order to complete all of the final finishes. Almost every trade represented: #finishcarpenter , #sheetrocking , #commercialpainter , #hvactechnician , #cabinetmakers , #electricians , #lowvoltagetechnician , #concretefinishers , #locksmiths , #hardwoodflooring , etc. A thousand moving parts all coordinated by our orchestra leaders Lance H @lhoffman13 and Jack F @jackfinnandcompany . #thebravitasgroup #caldwellnj
  • For our upcoming move to the Wilson, we designed an ethereal, open-concept, flexible work space that is focused on quality, art, and feeling zen.⁠

Here's a sneak peek at one of our inspiration boards for the kitchen area. I'm loving these soothing tones. We're making these tones come to life thanks to an incredible roster of vendors, including @cosentinocitynyc. ⁠

  • This is the most remarkable restoration ever. We were missing major pieces of 100 year old plaster molding at #thewilsoncaldwell . So of course we made a panic call to our skilled and talented artist Charlie Spademan @charliespademan and in his understated way he said “no problem , when do you need it?” Look at top left of photo to see old moulding die into the newly fabricated Charlie moulding .  As you scroll: Charlie making a mold of existing plaster mounding, newly fabricated moulding in Charlie’s studio , new moulding next to existing moulding, and new moulding next to missing moulding . #thebravitasgroup @jackfinnandcompany #charliespademan #plastermouldings #plastermolding #crownmolding #crownmoulding #plasterartist #plasterrepair
  • Can't believe that our move to the Wilson is just a few months away! Getting so excited for the final reveal. A huge thanks to the @thebravitasgroup and @jackfinnandcompany for all of their tireless work on the transformation of this incredible building, and to all of the amazing vendors who are joining us in the new space.⁠

Speaking of vendors, I have to give a special shout out to @cosentinocitynyc for helping us find the perfect stone and backsplash for our new office kitchen. You are going to love how clean and beautiful it looks, and my team is going to love how durable it is.⁠

Click the link in bio to watch me test out the stone's durability by setting nail polish on fire in the Cosentino showroom. Yup, you read that correctly. ⁠

  • Look at these amazing light fixtures selected by @wanderatelier for their new salon at #thewilsoncaldwell . #thebravitasgroup #caldwellnj #bridalatelier #bridalsalon
  • As you can imagine there are thousands of decisions to be made during an adaptive reuse project. What I enjoy the most is the “lively”(aka screaming matches) debates that we have about all the details and design choices  that go into a major construction project. Rick @sionas_architecture , our beloved architect, felt strongly that the new awning should have period details such as fleur de lis and finials. I totally dismissed it in favor of a much simpler (and cheaper) awning. Rick pushed back in his usual professional way and after saying no 3 times , he finally convinced me. Lance, Eddie , and I all agree Rick was right (don’t tell him , he isn’t on IG) . #thewilsoncaldwell #thebravitasgroup @jackfinnandcompany #awnings #awning #adaptivereuse #repurposedbuilding #caldwellnj CANOPY BY: Architectural Shade Products, Ball Ground, Ga.
  • Custom stone countertops being installed today by the crew from @pbstoneworks at #thewilsoncaldwell . Peter and his team are the best in the business. Their countertop products and fabrication are always of the highest quality and they always meet our unreasonable schedules.  I wish all of our vendors were this professional and reliable. Thank you Peter and team for setting the bar high . #thebravitasgroup #stonecountertops #countertopinstallation #countertops #pbstoneworks GeneralContractor: @jackfinnandcompany Design by: @rhgdesign
