EzyJamb and RocYork Case Study: 135W52

High Rise Luxury in Midtown chooses EZYJamb/ROCYork for minimal interior spaces…

At the centre of it all and amidst the hustle of NYC tourism and construction, you will find some of the most luxurious condominiums being erected.

The former failed hotel Flatotel located at 135 West 52nd Street is being converted into condominiums and remaking itself as the "affordable luxury" home-base of Midtown.

135 West 52nd offers new condominiums for sale in New York’s most exciting Midtown Manhattan location where Broadway, Fifth Avenue and Central Park meet.

The 47 storey building is undergoing an extreme makeover and will include 109 apartments that range from one to four bedrooms. Five spectacular penthouses are also planned, plus 12,000 square feet of amenities packed into a residents’ club. Prices are set to range from $1.5 million to over $15 million. EZYJamb clean line frames and concealed hinges from ROCYork were used to complete the flush interior walls.

French lighting artist Thierry Dreyfus was engaged to design a “prominent and permanent” 40-storey LED light installation for the building’s facade. Dreyfus is world renowned for his installations in the United States, France and China including Chateau de Versailles and Notre Dame, Lyon Biennale and the Grand Biennale.

This hotel to condo conversion project has been estimated to cost $250 million.

Steel Stud Framing Case Study: 777 Main

Construction for the apartment conversion of downtown Hartford’s former Bank of America skyscraper has commenced, with the total steel required for this project being 1.3 million lbs (589.67 tonnes).

Studco USA have been appointed by American Masons & Building Supply Company to supply products for use in the construction and fi t out. Specifically, Studco products include Drywall Studs, CrocStud20,CrocStud16 and various accessories.26–storey skyscraper building is located at 777 Main Street, Hartford, Connecticut. Having a long history of being the headquarters of various fi nancial institutions, more recently, 777 Main Street has been recognised as the former Bank of America headquarters. With the asset being acquired by Becker & Becker Associates, Inc in March 2014, the property has since become a focal point of state and local efforts to revitalise Hartford’s downtown.

 

The $80 million re-development project in Hartford, Connecticut’s central business district will see the prominent Hartford skyline structure being converted from a solely commercial space to a mixed-use residential property. The plan includes for twenty percent of the apartments to be set aside as affordable housing units for low-income residents. The project also includes an existing parking structure with approximately 249 spaces and approximately 35,000 square feet of ground floor retail space. The redevelopment of 777 Main Street from vacant downtown offi ce space into 285 apartments in the 26-storey building is the largest of the efforts in Hartford to create more housing in the downtown area.

One World Trade Center

Rising from the tragedy of 9/11 is the One World Trade Center tower, otherwise known as the Freedom Tower, the first of a series of proposed skyscrapers to be rebuilt on the site of the original world trade centre towers.

Standing as a shining beacon of resilience and progress in Lower Manhattan, New York, this artistically dynamic building stands at more than 500m tall and is the tallest building in the
United States and the Western Hemisphere. A variety of steel stud wall systems from Studco USA were used in the construction and fitout of this iconic project during 2013. The quality, strength and environmental credentials of Studco’s building systems make it the ideal match for this high-profile project where life-safety and sustainability are two of the foundational design principles.
