498 Seventh Avenue

New York, NY

GMS provided structural engineering, façade, and waterproofing consulting services for this building redevelopment project. The project includes lowering the ground floor at both the Seventh Avenue lobby and the West 36th Street lobby, creating two additional tenant-specific entries on Seventh Avenue and on West 36th Street, and one all-new building lobby on West 37th Street. All five lobbies include new canopies. The project also includes the installation of new escalators and elevators to access the second-floor amenity space, transformation of setback roofs into occupiable roof terraces for the tenants, and storefront replacement with ADA access into all retail spaces at the first and second floors.
