Mark E. Anderson is a licensed architect with nearly 30 years of experience in the construction industry. As Vice President and Director of Historic Preservation, Mark has dedicated his attention to exterior preservation projects in New York, NY and the East Coast for a quarter of a century. His portfolio includes a specialization in the repair and maintenance of building facades, roofing, exterior elements, and water elements. Featured projects include the historic preservation and exterior wall rehabilitation of the terracotta-clad Woolworth Building in Lower Manhattan, as well as the exterior forensic analysis and restoration of the McGraw Hill Building and the exterior restoration of 2 Fifth Avenue in Greenwich Village. He also contributed to the restoration of the terracotta and granite walls, windows, and copper mansard roof on the historic building at 90 West Street following damage attained during the September 11th attack. Mark is dedicated to the preservation, not only of the structural integrity of these landmark historic buildings in NYC but also to maintaining the original intent and purpose behind the design of buildings.
Mark attended The City College of New York for Architecture, in addition to Columbia University’s specialized master’s program for Historic Preservation. He is a licensed architect in eight states, and he represents the Staten Island Chapter of the American Institute of Architects on the board of directors for AIA New York State. As the founder of Westerleigh Talks, he organizes a monthly lecture series documenting the unique history of his hometown of Westerleigh, NY on the northwestern side of Staten Island. In addition to his vast architectural experience, Mark is also a skilled carpenter, fly fishing aficionado, and the father to three boys with his wife Nancy. When he is not at the office, he can most often be found hanging (safely) from the side of a building.
“As a licensed professional, it is a great honor to be able to help a situation that seems almost hopeless and figure out what needs to be done, and do it in a way that is dignified and brings a building back to life.”
