AAI Architects, P.C. is the Executive Architect for this regeneration and renewal project. Based on a preliminary concept developed by L&L Holding Company and the Design Architects, Kohn Pedersen Fox, this project entails the strategic removal of existing bulk within the podium and mid-rise section of the existing structure, with the removed area reconfigured into new construction within the high-rise section of the tower. The existing building is approximately 700,000 gsf above-grade with approximately 100,000 gsf below-grade. New MEP systems will be installed throughout the above-grade structure. As part of the demolition sequence, the exterior wall will be removed while the entire above-grade areas will be skinned in a new curtain wall enclosure. The revised shell and core will include new ground floor lobby, elevator cabs, and typical floor washrooms.
Sculpted to approximate the setbacks of New York City’s ‘sky exposure plane’, 390 Madison is to be an exemplar development that will establish a new design standard for re-positioning existing buildings in mid-town Manhattan.
