Located on the Upper East Side, the project entails the conversion of an inefficient boutique office building into an iconic multi-level restaurant. The renovation will involve removing part of the roof to install a double-height dining experience and the installation within the existing structure of two new elevators and emergency egress. The entrance level will be lowered three feet to eliminate the existing steps to meet ADA requirements and to create high ceilings. The base building services will be all new to accommodate the increased demands of the kitchen designed to serve over 200 seats. The project completion will be in 2020.
