I am a Realtor® and an owner in Interlaken Gardens. It is possible to add a powder room on the first floor of a duplex in Interlaken. Depending on which side of the hall it is on, you may need the owner of the simplex on the first floor to give permission for the drain pipe to run through their closet. One side simply needs Interlaken permission. You do have to apply to the Board for approval but there is support from the property manager who would like to see this done.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

If you are asking this question because you are looking to buy at Interlaken, I would contact the managing agent and also try to get to someone on the Board and get an answer as to whether or not they would consider this. If you do get an okay, and you purchase the property, you will mostly like need an architect to draw up the plans. The plans would normally have to be approved by the Board and then you will need a licensed and boded contractor. If you already live there or you are in contract to buy there, I would follow the same procedure. Check with the Board and managing agent first.

Coops generally do not allow you to change the original layout. If you want to pursue it, you can submit plans to the management company and Board of Directors for approval. Be sure you have a licensed and insured plumber and electrian.

Check out the house rules first and do check with management, to see if the powder room addition is permissable.

If you are looking to buy at Interlaken, I would suggest you contact the managing agent of the complex. They should be able to answer your question. If you already live there, you should check the Bylaws or House Rules which should spell out what you can or can't do.
