AAI Architects, P.C. is the Architect of Record for the redevelopment of the 450 West 33rd Street office building. Our scope of work includes the renovation and retrofit of the base building shell and core of a prominent, 16-story office building housing approximately 1,650,000 sf above and below-grade.
Designed by New York-based architectural firm, REX, the redevelopment will modernize and fully integrate the 1.8 million sf building through an exterior re-cladding and interior renovation program including a new pleated glass façade which will create floor-to-ceiling windows on every floor, serving to maximize daylight penetration while reducing solar gain. The interior program includes a redesigned lobby, upgraded and expanded elevators, and enhanced HVAC and other mechanical systems. New retail storefronts will be incorporated along 31st, 33rd Streets and 10th Avenue with additional pedestrian connections extending over Dryer Avenue to Brookfield’s Manhattan West Project.
