Project Key Features

The project consisted of a new 16-story building with a total area of approximately 161,945 gsf, located at 155-165 West 29th Street in New York City. This high-rise functioned as a high-quality self-storage facility, including cellar and sub-cellar levels. The first floor featured a small office and a break room for building employees.

Key building features included modern architectural design elements, state-of-the-art security systems, and energy-efficient systems throughout the facility. The building was designed to provide a clean, secure, and climate-controlled environment, suitable for a variety of storage needs, including premium storage for art and wine. The structure boasted large, easily accessible loading areas, and a thoughtfully designed lobby that facilitated smooth operations and excellent customer service.

This proposal included the full MEP/FP fitout of all areas, including but not limited to the lobby, office, break room, vehicle area, self-storage areas, premium storage, and back-of-house spaces. The project had the potential to increase the total gross area with an additional 2.0 FAR, and this was covered under the proposal at no extra cost. Additionally, MEP support for a solar panel or green roof, as required by NYC Local Laws, was included, although the selection and arrangement of the solar panels were managed by others. The project aimed to achieve LEED Silver certification, and GEA provided necessary services, including energy modeling and commissioning for NYC Energy Code compliance.
