331 Park Avenue South

New York, New York

At 331 Park Avenue, a building long vacant has been repositioned to house The Assemblage Park Avenue co-working tenant. We completely overhauled the 35,000-square-foot building and pulled it’s 1920’s-era character into the 21st Century while meeting the demands of an ever-evolving, holistic work environment. We delivered the renovated base building and interiors to become a new hub for entrepreneurs and small businesses, contributing to the energy of the exciting neighborhood.

The building’s façade was sensitively restored and deteriorating ornamental masonry facing Park Avenue South was remediated. At street-level, the entrances to The Assemblage Park Avenue and a planned restaurant were redesigned to actively engage passersby. Each window was replaced to maximize daylight and remain energy efficient. Although the building isn’t registered with the New York Landmarks Preservation Commission, we designed the façade’s enhancements to refresh its original design, re-establishing its sense of place among its historic surroundings while offering a modern update, including operable windows for the restaurant to take advantage of nice weather.

Inside, everything is completely new. While programming was in the early stages, the base building received upgraded everything – from flooring to mechanical, electrical, plumbing, technology, and accessibility systems. Each floorplate is mostly open, very few new walls were added with many being demountable for maximum flexibility to serve the evolving needs of The Assemblage Park Avenue members. The building’s core was upgraded with new restrooms, upgraded stairs, and custom elevators.
