Times Square New Years Celebrations Is One Step Closer

Tower Crane Dismantled

Having recently celebrated its topping out, the ongoing construction of the $500 Million redevelopment of One Times Square is now one step closer to serving as a year-round NYC entertainment hub. This week, the tower crane that lifted the final beam into place was dismantled to make way for the 2024 ball drop!

Working with Orange County Ironworks, LLC, McLaren’s Construction Engineering team provided the engineered design drawings for the tower crane erection and dismantling plans, as well as design drawings for the assist crane.

The 119-year-old building has been the home of the iconic New Year’s Eve tradition for more than a century, and is slated to open much of the building’s interior to the public sometime in 2025 and will include a new visitor center, a viewing deck, a museum experience, and twelve floors of interactive brand experiences.

November Update

Tower Crane Erection

The renovation of One Times Square, home of NYC’s iconic ball drop, hit another construction project milestone in Novemeber with the erection of the Favco 220 Tower Crane.

Working with Orange County Ironworks, LLC, McLaren’s Construction Engineering team provided the engineered design drawings for the tower crane, which was located on the east side of the historic building and was being used for steel erection as part of ongoing renovation work. The crane sat on a custom “diving board” truss that cantilevered back into the building where it was supported by a combination of existing building columns and new foundations.

McLaren also provided the design drawings for the GMK6300L assist crane that was used to erect the tower crane up to the first phase of installation sequencing.
