Rafael Viñoly’s design for 787 Eleventh Avenue revealed

A Hell’s Kitchen automobile dealership is growing up, literally. New York YIMBY shared our rendering of 787 Eleventh Avenue’s office expansion, designed by architect Rafael Viñoly. The expansion to the eight-story building will add two stories and 86,000 square feet, bringing the building’s total square footage to more than 500,000. We also created renderings of the interior, which include 24-foot ceilings, oversized windows and a 12,000-square-foot roof deck for the office tenants. Viñoly shared that he is honored to be on the project, stating that “the opportunity to combine the building’s historic architecture with a sleek and modern design is one I could not pass up.”




Wanted: Design-build teams for the Javits Center’s expansion

This month, The Real Deal shared that the state issued a request for qualifications for the $1 billion expansion of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.

Back in January, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the 30-year-old center will add 1.2 million additional square feet to accommodate a growing demand for convention space, according to amNewYork. See our rendering of what the center’s expansion could look like:

The Real Deal added that Shahrzad Khayami of AscentSeven paid $6.8 million for the building in 2014 and spent two years restoring the building’s facade, and rebuilding the interior, which can be seen in our rendering here:
