CONSTRUCTION UPDATE!

The roof repair and replacement of the former restaurant area started summer of 2020 with planning and design. The $5 million Empire State Development funded project addressed the severely deteriorated roof, made even worse during a 2019 windstorm that blew off part of the roof, resulting in severe and relentless water infiltration and damage. The former restaurant area is now dry, and ready for the next phase of construction.

The lightwell and restaurant roof repairs are nearly complete in this photo and the scaffolding has been removed. The flat restaurant roof is connected to masonry walls, several abutting roofs, including a connection point to the Concourse. Deterioration at all of these areas were causing water infiltration and damage and were also repaired.
