Cirgenski+Capalino served as the Owner’s Representative for the development of NDI’s condominium headquarters located at West 147th Street in Harlem. The project occupies the community facility space within the newly converted former PS90 and comprised the design and construction of four dance studio spaces, several large gathering areas, as well as administrative offices for NDI.
The First Floor space, roughly 4,000 square feet and formerly constructed as a residential condominium, required demolition and re-configuration to accommodate NDI’s office space. A new ground floor entrance, constructed on 147th Street, was designed to serve both the office space and to provide access via a new stair and elevator, to the Cellar Level, which comprises approximately 14,000 square feet. This level houses NDI’s studio dance spaces, as well as a performance space lobby, dressing rooms, restrooms and storage spaces. The project was completed one month ahead of schedule and was under budget.
SIZE: 18,000 SF
SCHEDULE: Completion of construction - September 2011
