Silver Star Motors

Long Island City, NY

GMS provided structural engineering services for the core and shell of this new building of approximately 162,000 sf over 10 stories, plus a full cellar.  The building includes a new car showroom with service / repair area at street level, a used-car showroom above, and parking garage below. The upper levels and the roof are designed for residential occupancy. The project is adjacent to the subway line running along Northern Boulevard, so approval of the MTA was required to obtain construction permits.
