Toys “R” Us – Times Square

New York, NY

GMS served as both the structural engineer and the curtain wall consultant for the new Toys “R” Us flagship store in New York City’s Time Square. This design incorporated a custom “point supported” glazing system and custom metal cladding. The fast-track schedule and complicated coordination issues required the extensive participation of GMS in all aspects of the façade design and erection.

Renovation of an existing building into a retail store with four levels, totaling over 103,000sq.ft. Included among the store’s new features are a large atrium, glass curtain wall façade, and two suspended glass walkways.
