National Basketball Players Association Relocation
Mancini was tapped by the National Basketball Players Association (“NBPA”) to serve as the designer and architect for the relocation of its offices and the build-out of an adjoining training facility that will, as NBPA Executive Director Michele Roberts put it, serve as a “home away from home” for current and former NBA players.
The NBPA wanted to relocate its offices somewhere centrally located within Manhattan, closer to the Midtown hotels players stay at while visiting from other cities. This required an extensive site selection process; over 150 sites throughout Midtown Manhattan were reviewed before the client selected 1133 Avenue of the Americas.
