Role: Project Manager and Designer
A competition entry with TEN Arquitectos for East 125th Street is a mixed-used development consisting of roughly 1.7 million SF of assorted retail space, residential living, arts and cultural programs, commercial office space, boutique hotel and below grade parking. This diverse mix of programs is spread across nearly two full New York City blocks in East Harlem.
In typical New York City fashion each block will be densely packed with shopping, restaurants, cafes, and bars. In the heart of the block is a familiar urban experience taking place in a unique public plaza that is both an extension and expansion of the sidewalk. Above the plaza on the rooftops a series of outdoor spaces unfold to accommodate residential living, a boutique hotel and office life.
