Lead engineer of the Twin Towers lists UWS condo for $2.6M

Leslie E. Robertson, head of Leslie E. Robertson Associates, and his wife, fellow engineer Sawteen See, have listed their condo at 100 Riverside Boulevard for $2.65 million, according to StreetEasy.

Robertson was the lead structural engineer of the Twin Towers as part of the engineering firm Magnusson Klemencic Associates (Robertson later left the firm to found his own). A report on the buildings’ design by FEMA after the towers fell found that “many structural and fire protection features of the design and construction were found to be superior to the minimum code requirements,” a chief reason why the towers did not immediately collapse.

Other notable projects Robertson’s firm has worked on include the World Trade Center Freedom Tower, the Time Warner Center, the Bank of China Tower, the Newseum in Washington D.C., The Gagosian Gallery in New York and the Broad Art Museum in Los Angeles. Sawteen See is a managing partner at Leslie E. Robertson Associates.

Robertson and See’s 1,309-square-foot apartment has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, river views from every room and a chef’s kitchen. The couple paid a little more than $1.8 million for the apartment in 2008.
