Project Description

“The Meatpacking District has long been known for its nightlife, shopping, and dining. However, in the wake of Google’s success at 111 Eighth Avenue, companies and developers alike have noticed its potential as a working location.”

As part of New York’s expanding portfolio of mixed-use residential construction, Ultimate 348 is a hybrid of retail on the ground floor with offices on the 2nd through 6th floors. DRPILLA was the structural engineer for project which included the addition of two new floors, a comprehensive gut renovation of the interior space which included new mechanicals, mezzanine space, and double-height 16’6” ceilings.

Mixed-Use Renovation

This project, located at 348 West 14th Street, is a renovation of an existing wood joist-framed building. As per New York City’s building codes, residential space on the site is maximized. To accommodate the necessary residential requirements, several floors were added onto the existing building, which required reinforcing the existing structure.

Custom Curtain Wall Design

Additionally, the brick façade was removed and replaced with a contemporary glass and steel update, which is a visual contrast to the adjacent red brick and white stone buildings.
