Description:
Construction Manager at Risk for comprehensive building renovation, including building systems and technology infrastructure upgrades, to an existing five and a half story community center. The center, which has served the Lower East Side area since 1890, provides a wide range of programs with the aim of nurturing the whole person and building a more connected and inclusive community. The project converted the 57,000 sf main building located at 197 East Broadway and the 17,000 sf Podell Building located at 179 Henry Street into a modernized and environmentally conscious center with new classrooms, art studios and gallery spaces, administrative offices, gymnasium, and rooftop playground. A major focal point is a state-of-the-art, glass-enclosed 3,100 sf multipurpose event space with views of the city and landscaped rooftop. LEED Silver.
