44 Union Square
The curved dome atop 44 Union Square, the former headquarters of Tammany Hall, is structurally completed and the geometric glass panels that enclose the lattice frame are beginning to be installed. The renovation is designed by BKSK Architects and developed by Edifice Real Estate Partners. CNY Group is in charge of construction on the historic, 90-year-old landmarked structure, which is being expanded to 70,348 square feet. Two new floors will be housed beneath the dome and receive abundant natural daylight. Reading International (RDI), who purchased the building eighteen years ago, helped to advance the project thanks a $57.5 million construction loan they secured from Bank of Ozarks and Fisher Brothers.
Designed with a symmetrically curvilinear space frame with triangular-shaped glass panels, construction progresses on the new addition at 44 Union Square. When completed, this contemporary addition will create two new floors that overlook Union Square. The total square footage of the 90-year-old landmarked mixed-use building will increase to 70,348 square feet. BKSK Architects is the designer, while Edifice Real Estate Partners is developing the property. CNY Group is in charge of the construction and renovations.
