Marks, Elyse

Elyse received her bachelor’s degree in architecture from Louisiana State University in May 2010, and a master’s degree in historic preservation, concentration in preservation design, from Columbia University GSAPP in May of 2012.
She is currently employed as a restoration architect, project manager and studio head at CANY Architecture + Engineering, DPC. She has 6 years of experience in architectural restoration and the preservation of historic structures within the New York area. Areas of proficiency include facade restoration and historic building documentation, as well as architectural conservation, materials evaluation, and structural and material repair. Over the past three years, her work has mainly been focused on exterior façade restoration of historic and landmarked buildings within New York City. As a SRAT-certified rope access technician, she is able to gain access to all areas of a building to perform close-up inspections, with the purpose of identifying and evaluating deteriorated components of the building façade. From there, she can develop a repair scope to address the deficient building conditions before they become hazardous.

The main purpose of her work is to contribute to the overall safety of the city and its pedestrians; however, her true passion lies in the restoration of historic buildings: working to preserve or restore historic structures can include stabilization and structural repair work, rehabilitation of the exterior façade, restoration of architecturally significant features, or reconstruction of defining historic elements of the building. In her career, she has been involved in the restoration of several historically significant buildings in New York City and the surrounding area, such as The City Bank Farmer’s Trust Building (20 Exchange Place), The Plaza Hotel, the former Coty Building (Henri Bendel’s at 714 Fifth Avenue), Snug Harbor Music Hall, the Armor-Stiner Octagon House, the Crown Building (730 Fifth Avenue) and the Flatiron Building.
