New York, NY
Architect: ABA Studio and MdeAS Architects
This 5,000 sq. ft. cellar fit-out and egress stairs project included demolition and replacement of stairways to facilitate two forms of egress from the cellar to the first floor of this new retail space. A hidden door was even built within the lobby’s wall tiles to ensure a safe and stylish exit route. Project also entailed a cellar demise to create a storeroom and future tenant space.
Throughout the project, Eastman Cooke successfully met New York City landmark (LPC) specifications for the 1905 building, OSHA and DOB requirements, scheduling deadlines, as well as extensive changes to the stairwell design. We also built two bathrooms at the site, made necessary piping adjustments, and worked with Con Edison to coordinate the removal of a large oil tank in the cellar. In addition, crews seamlessly coordinated complex logistics and deliveries during a simultaneous build-out by the tenant, helping to ensure a successful grand opening for a major Soho retailer.
As Eastman Cooke further solidifies our relationship with our Greystone client, we have now been retained for pre-construction services for an upcoming second lobby renovation and new roofscape at 75 Spring Street.
