PRESS Resiliency: The New Sustainability 

This project involved demolition of an existing building at 81-85 Bluxome Street and construction of a new 5-story, 56,850 SF office building. The design for the new office space includes Shell Building Design, Roof Deck, and Common Area Interiors.

The 65-foot high building features a private tenant roof deck on fifth level and common amenities on the roof level. The design of the building’s façade frames open window bays using rustic refined panels with an oxidized finish. Open floor plates provide flexibility to meet future tenant’s needs for creative office space. The design employs modern materials and sustainable design practices including provision of bike lockers and shower facilities.

RIM managed the planning and environmental application phase and the design team management for the architecture and interior design, roof deck design, and signage design. RIM led this project through all phases of design development and construction documents and construction administration.
