SDNY Office Building to Undergo $240M Modernization
Krueck Sexton Partners was selected by the General Services Administration to provide architect-engineer services as part of a comprehensive $240-million modernization of the Silvio J. Mollo Federal Building in Lower Manhattan’s Civic Center District.
Constructed in 1974, the property at 1 St. Andrew’s Plaza houses the offices of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York and U.S. Marshals Service.
Enhancements to the 10-story, 160,000-square-foot building will include the replacement of all major building systems, modifications to the base building structure, and the installation of a new high-performance building façade.
Other modifications will include development of a new main entrance, upgrades to the building’s accessibility and security infrastructure, and interior design.
Other contributors to the modernization project include Schiller Projects (interior design and workplace strategy consultant); Thornton Tomasetti (structural and facade engineer); WSP (MEP/FP engineer); Atelier Ten (sustainability consultant); and Langan Engineering (civil, geotechnical, and environmental engineer).
