10 Times Square Renovation
10 Times Square Renovation
Central was awarded the Lobby renovation project in July 2016 that included a complete demolition of the existing lobby, installing new walls and ceilings, Florim wall porcelain sheets, new Terrazzo floors, complete HVAC system, all new lighting, polishing of existing marble and terrazzo to remain.
As a result of the demonstrated professional competence on the Lobby project we were offered taking over the Curtain Wall replacement project which the previous contractor was dismissed for non-performance. This work includes a 34’ high unique Sentech curtain wall system that required detailed structural steel and reinforced concrete curbs. This curtain wall system has no visible bracketry or bolts from the outside. We are installing 8 pairs of Dawson balanced doors in structural portals, complete new stainless steel storefront system with two Crane revolving doors and two Dawson single balanced doors. The owner has also selected 2” thick granite base around the entire perimeter. New GFRC panels above the curtain walls. All work done in one of the busiest pedestrian corridors in all of NYC.
The Curtain Wall system was installed to reposition the buildings retail space and make it more attractive and functional for large retail tenants in this difficult retail leasing environment. It worked! The Owner has signed Champs for approximately 15,000 square feet on the Ground, Second and Mezzanine spaces, or about 1/3 of the retail space.
Central was awarded the Landlord work, which we call Retail Preparation work in preparation of Champs taking over the space for their buildout. This included massive interior demolition of the existing mezzanine and ground floor structures, complete structural steel and concrete slab for an entirely new mezzanine and reconfigured ground floor. Two new escalators, new elevator, new ADA lift, 1200 Amp electrical service, 250 Ton cooling tower on the roof and related piping heat trace and insulation. All new sprinkler risers & plumbing risers to serve Champs. Demolition and replacement of the entire sidewalk. Major work completed in 4 months from lease execution.
Central was also awarded the LED signage package on the project which includes structural steel supports and major electrical power requirements in addition construction a control room to house the content servers for the anticipated 4 signs. Sign A, on the corner of Broadway and 41st Street, is L shaped and approximately 30’ wide on both Broadway and 41st Street and 24’ high in 10mm LED. The installation of the steel structure will be started in early November and the sign will be installed and working in early December.
