This article for STRUCTURE Magazine’s November 2022 issue outlines the collaboration between the GMS team of Partners Karl Rubenacker and Jessica Mandrick, along with Project Engineer Lizhong Wang, and the building owner, Jack Resnick and Sons. The team’s collaboration began back in 2007 to upgrade 315 Hudson Street, the 385,000 gsf 10-story building, into Class A office space. The renovations for the lobby, rooftop, and redevelopment were led by FXCollaborative Architects, and the ground floor retail space was led by Specter DeSouza Architects.
