Client: Blumenfeld Development Group

12 story mixed use project, consisting of 233 residential rentals, 38,000sf of commercial space and 19,200 sf of parking. The geometry and façade are striking, with a twelve story curving and sloping metal clad curtain wall on 126th St, and a 6 story perpendicular cantilevered addition creating a T-shaped building. Concrete and steel structures are designed for the main building and the addition respectively, and both are founded on caisson support systems. The project imposed logistical challenges, including working over and through fully occupied commercial and retail premises for the addition along a high foot traffic seat and subway.
