The Frick Collection’s Expansion Progresses at 1 East 70th Street on Manhattan’s Upper East Side
Construction has topped out on the expansion of The Frick Collection at 1 East 70th Street on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Designed by Annabelle Selldorf of Selldorf Architects with Beyer Blinder Belle as the architect of record, the addition will add 18,000 square feet of museum space to the historic property, which first opened to the public in 1935 and is bound by Fifth Avenue, East 70th, and East 71st Streets. Sciame Construction is the general contractor for the $160 million project, which broke ground in May 2021 after gaining approval from the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC). Kohler Ronan provided MEP/FP engineering services, as well as IT and security design services for the Frick Collection Expansion project.
