Detailed: An original podcast by ARCAT
In this episode, Cherise is joined by William Mandara Jr., AIA, CEO & Co-Owner at Mancini Duffy, Joseph R. Levi, Project Manager from Pavarini McGovern, and J. Benjamin Alper, PE, SE, Principal at Severud Associates Consulting Engineers. They discuss TSX Broadway in New York City.
At 550,000 total square feet, this is the largest project in Mancini Duffy’s 100+-year-old history, and they have been working on it for SEVEN years!
Developed by L&L Holding Company in partnership with Fortress Investment Group, the $2.5 billion, 46-story mixed-use building is an extensive redevelopment of an existing building located at 1568 Broadway, in the heart of Times Square.
The vision behind TSX was to create an entertainment ecosystem which consists of galleries, a one of kind outdoor stage that cantilevers out into Times Square, a 150-seat backstage venue, the historic Palace Theatre, a hospitality lounge that features the largest terrace in Times Square, an expansive wraparound exterior LED screen that provides the largest signage opportunity in Times Square, a 669-key hotel with unobstructed views of Times Square, and exclusive entertainment suites.
The challenge? To make way for up to 75,000 square feet of new flagship-ready retail space, the Palace Theatre had to be raised 30 feet into the air!
