Preservation Work in NYC Wins Awards

McLaren is working to keep NYC’s history alive! At The New York Landmarks Conservancy Lucy G. Moses Preservation Awards in April, the following three projects McLaren helped restore will receive the highest honors for outstanding preservation work.

  • TWA Hotel – Originally designed in 1956, the restored JFK airport terminal in Queens, NY now serves as the largest hotel grand lobby in the world.
  • Empire Stores – The adaptive reuse project transformed a pre-civil war era brick coffee warehouse, along DUMBO Brooklyn’s waterfront, into a trendy urban marketplace with a food hall and rooftop beer garden that provides beautiful views of the city.
  • Belvedere Castle –  Designed in 1865, this iconic Central Park structure provides stunning views as a backdrop as well as atop its rocky outcropping.

For these historic preservation projects, McLaren provided an array of civil, geotechnical, structural and construction engineering services including site development, geothermal, building envelope, connection design and miscellaneous metals. Congratulations to everyone involved and kudos on keeping these landmarks a viable part of our history!
