Within the existing walls of a former two story structure, Nike’s new five story 55,000 square foot retail experience, with accessory office space and a terrace, rises to six stories. The total framed area of the development is approximately 61,400 square feet. The complex terracotta rain screen, transforms from what looks like masonry with punched windows on Spring Street, to a modern glass curtainwall as it wraps around the corner at Broadway. The exposed steel moment frame structure is fully integrated into the interior design. GMS provided structural engineering, interaction with the MTA, special inspection and construction monitoring services. The store opened in November 2016.
