85 Broad Street Cafe
85 Broad Street Redesign
When Superstorm Sandy hit the Northeast, the owner of 85 Broad Street turned to Mancini to capitalize on the opportunity to completely re‑imagine the 85 Broad Street Cafe. With the restaurants of Stone Street right outside the building’s front door, the new cafeteria would have to compete with a huge array of lunch options vying for tenants’ business. On top of that, the space was already at a huge disadvantage, being located below grade with no access to natural light. With these formidable challenges in mind, Mancini addressed them through thoughtful programming and design, rebranding the cafeteria as a destination for both dining and business.
