The New 42nd Street was founded in 1990 by New York City and the State in response to the neglected stretch of urban decay on 42nd Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues in Times Square. The organization’s purview includes the management of seven theaters that serve a diverse group of non-profit dance, theater and opera groups, as well as commercial Broadway musicals and plays.
New 42’s new, 84,000 square foot building provides state-of-the-art rehearsal studios, a black box theater and administrative offices. The complex features column-free studios with sprung floors, tall ceiling heights, ballet barres, floor-to-ceiling mirrors, theatrical lighting and excellent acoustics. To reflect the vibrant cultural activity within the building, the design highlights movement and light through a largely transparent building and illuminated façade.
Role + Responsibilities
New 42 engaged Zubatkin to facilitate the completion of the construction and manage the close-out of the new building. The firm’s In-House Technical Group was instrumental in reviewing drawings and resolving technical issues related to the construction.
Since bringing the closeout of the new building project to successful completion, Zubatkin remains a trusted advisor to New 42 and represents them on several tenant improvement projects and other enhancements to their facilities.
