One Times Square Celebrates Topping Out

The topping out of One Times Square last Thursday marked a huge milestone in the ongoing $500 million redevelopment of the historic building known for hosting the annual New Year’s Eve Ball Drop.

Originally built in 1904 as The New York Times headquarters, the redevelopment will open much of the building’s interior to the public for the first time in decades, and includes the creation of a viewing deck, museum experience, and 12 floors of technology-enabled brand activations.

Zubatkin is excited to continue supporting Jamestown in the implementation of the modernization of One Times Square as a 21st century visitor center for New York City and is honored to work alongside team members S9 Architecture, SLCE, the Turner Construction/ Promethean Builders joint venture, and the entire One Times Square team.

Construction Begins on New-York Historical Society’s Democracy Wing

Construction Begins on New-York Historical Society’s Democracy Wing

Construction began last month on the 80,000 SF expansion to the New-York Historical Society’s landmarked Upper West Side building. Dubbed the “Democracy Wing,” the five-story addition was designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects (RAMSA) and will provide much-needed space for their growing educational programs, collection conservation and storage, exhibition galleries, and The American LGBTQ+ Museum.

Trustees purchased the adjoining lot in 1937, foreseeing the critical and always-evolving role N-YHS plays in teaching, documenting, and preserving New York’s history. According to NYHS’s President and CEO Dr. Louise Mirrer, this new expansion “will serve as a beacon for democracy education, a powerhouse of inclusive history, and a home for history enthusiasts of all backgrounds and perspectives.”

After being engaged to facilitate the initial feasibility study and development of the scope, Zubatkin continues to oversee the design and preconstruction – managing the day-to-day implementation of the expansion and advising on the procurement and contracting strategy. We are proud to be part of the team delivering this exceptional project that will help preserve and broaden access to New York’s diverse history. Read more about the project on N-YHS’s website and in the Architect’s Newspaper.

Historic Launch of Forever Pennington Campaign

Historic Launch of Forever Pennington Campaign

The Pennington School formally announced the launch of the Forever Pennington campaign, which outlines a historic investment in the campus and positions the 185-year old institution for the future.  With a $50 million goal, the campaign builds on the School’s core strengths and harnesses the momentum experienced in recent decades, ensuring future generations of students will benefit from Pennington’s transformational education. This visionary initiative will advance strategic priorities related to the student experience, faculty excellence, facilities and campus improvements, and financial sustainability.

Over the past five years, Zubatkin has served as a trusted advisor to The Pennington School in supporting its planning initiatives, including a landscape master plan and campus master plan with Digsau Architects and Quennell Rothschild & Partners in response to an updated strategic plan for its 55-acre New Jersey campus. Members of our Zubatkin team attended the official campaign launch event last month as a sign of our ongoing support. We were excited to see the realization of the most ambitious campaign in Pennington’s history and look forward to seeing the implementation of the next phases!  Learn more through the Campaign Video.

Zubatkin Celebrates The New York Landmark Conservancy’s 50th Anniversary and Honoree His Eminence, Timothy Cardinal Dolan

At Zubatkin, we have a deep respect (and love) for the buildings and sites that have influenced and contributed to not only their community, but also the urban and rural fabric of our city. Much of our work focuses on the adaptive reuse and restoration of these structures, ensuring the building has a longer and more sustainable life, while also retaining and revitalizing the cultural vibrancy of the surrounding area.

As proud members of the Professional Circle with The New York Landmarks Conservancy, an organization that helps to support these projects, we’d like to acknowledge the honorees of the Conservancy’s 50th Anniversary Living Landmarks Celebration – including our longtime collaborator His Eminence, Timothy Cardinal Dolan. Through his work leading the Archdiocese of New York, Cardinal Dolan’s contributions to New York City ensure that it remains culturally vibrant, resilient, and relevant for generations to come. Congratulations!

At tonight’s Common Bond Gala, Zubatkin will join the New York architecture community to celebrate The Center and its mission to education the public about the value of architecture and design.

We’d like to acknowledge the esteemed 2023 Common Bond honorees – especially our friend and partner Jeanne Gang for her innovative contributions to the design field.  We were able to see firsthand the impact of Studio Gang’s work at the American Museum of Natural History, where the new Gilder Center presents an experiential architecture that encourages exploration and furthers the Museum’s mission of advancing scientific research and education.
