In 2013, Sony USA sold their iconic Midtown headquarters building and leased approximately 300,000 square feet of space in a historic art deco skyscraper overlooking Madison Square Park. In addition to tenant improvement work on the top twelve floors of the building, base building improvements for Sony included the creation of a new dedicated lobby for Sony on a mezzanine level above street-level loading docks, renewal of the building’s elevators and MEP systems, and creation of new windows and a roof terrace at the top of the building.
Project responsibilities included test fits, renderings, and schematic design support for the tenant improvement scope, and construction administration for the associated base building improvements.
