First Standard Construction has announced that it has completed a full gut renovation of 102 Greene Street one month ahead of the originally scheduled November 2018 completion date. The space has officially opened.
According to Damien Smith, President, First Standard Construction, First Standard’s unique knowledge and ability to navigate inspection and paperwork processes led to the expedited completion of this time sensitive project.
“At First Standard, we pride ourselves on maintaining immaculate records on each step of our construction process. Necessary paperwork for each stage is completed in real time so that our records are flawless for inspections and approvals,” said Smith. “Staying ahead of the curve allows us to execute most efficiently.”
102 Greene Street is a redeveloped mixed-use building, boasting traditional SoHo architecture along the charming cobblestone streets of New York City’s premiere retail destinations. The building features 11,000 SF of space over five levels, 25 feet of frontage and an exclusive rooftop oasis. The first floor and cellar will be retail spaces and floors 2, 3 and bulkhead will be for commercial use.
First Standard Construction performed a full gut, full demo and removal of wood joist down to the cellar which have been replaced with steel beams, Q deck and concrete. The installation of a new elevator with an additional stop to the roof will be used as a shared space for the commercial tenants. Due to the need to have a second means of egress a new opening in the cellar wall between the building and its neighbors was created with a corridor through the neighboring building, connecting with their hallway and out onto the street.
