collaborative approach to the delivery of luxurious condominiums
Gilbane is providing construction management pre-construction services for the development of a mixed-use building by Ceruzzi Properties. The building comprises 30,000 square feet of commercial retail and a gymnasium on the ground floors, as well as 18 levels of luxury residential apartments above. Designed by HOK Architects, the building boasts a stunning glass façade, with the 61 condominiums averaging 2,300 square feet each. Each home is appointed with Italian Calcutta marble in the kitchens and bathrooms, as well as a Greek Thassos marble in the master bathroom, providing high quality, luxurious finishes for future residents.
The project began with demolition of the existing building, followed by an excavation program, before the erection of the steel reinforced concrete superstructure. Located over a subway entrance, the project required extensive logistics planning and ongoing collaboration with the MTA to ensure no transportation disruption during construction. Gilbane built a new temporary MTA sidewalk entrance with directional signage to ensure that subway access remains uninterrupted for the local community.
Ongoing consultation and collaboration with the MTA is a critical component of this project. The location of the building requires the construction of the new staircase entrance from station to street level. Once the building is completed, there will also be a new ADA elevator from the sidewalk to the station below. To achieve seamless project delivery with no subway disruption, ongoing collaboration with the MTA was crucial.
