The One SoHo Square project will create a premier Class A office building by combining two existing buildings at 161 Avenue of the Americas and 233 Spring Street and adding a new lobby and three terraced penthouse floors.
From an MEP engineering perspective, this project is complex. Our team worked with the developer to join three tax lots and two buildings into one. We designed a new base building service core between the two existing buildings, which contained all of the vertical transportation and base building MEP infrastructure.
The new MEP services our team designed included a new steam boiler plant to replace the existing one and a new floor-by-floor water cooled DX system. We also designed new electric bus duct risers to serve the mechanical loads, tenant distribution and glass entrance lobby.
Our engineering team for the project has been the same from start to today - seven years later.
