541 West 21st Street Building Repositioning
Mancini is working with Erbo Properties and Higher Ground Development to reposition 541 West 21st Street, now known as the Frame Building. Located in the burgeoning West Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, the building was originally constructed in 1915 and previously served as a storage building and for display of arts from around the City.
We worked carefully to redesign the existing structure within its historical context. One of the major interventions Mancini designed as part of the complete building repositioning was the expansion of existing windows and the addition of new windows to maximize light and air. The results will be incredible and not often found on mid-block buildings in the area. Additional components of the building repositioning will include all new building systems, and activation of underutilized spaces to transform them into world-class tenant amenities.
