GMS provided structural engineering services to create the new home for MCC Theater, an Off-Broadway nonprofit focusing on new work by living writers. The Theater is 27,000 square feet located in the lower levels of the Avalon Clinton building at Tenth Avenue and West 52nd Street in Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood, over the Amtrak train tunnels.
This venue provides a 245-seat proscenium-style theater, a 100-seat flexibly configured theater, two rehearsal studios and all the amenities expected in a modern theater including workshop spaces and a bar. Construction cost was approximately $45,000,000.
