Engineers expanding to 39,000 s/f at 100 b'way.
Buro Happold Consulting Engineers, the U.S. subsidiary of an international engineering firm, has expanded its presence at 100 Broadway to just shy of 39,000 s/f, having signed a lease for the entire 14th floor, according to the firm's real estate advisor, Studley.
The firm opened its first U.S. office of FTL-Happold in New York in 1992 to produce designs for lightweight fabric structures. In the late 1990s increasing demand to provide structural and MEP solutions for a wider range of building types and design challenges resulted in the establishment of Buro Happold in New York. Buro Happold moved to 100 Broadway in January 2006, when it leased the top two floors of the building, 23 and 24. In less than two years the firm has grown its business in the United States to such a degree that it needed an additional floor, explained Allyson Bowen, Studley assistant director, who along with executive managing director Howard Nottingham represented the tenant.
Some of the firm's most notable projects in the U.S. include: the Kogod Courtyard at the Smithsonian American Art Museum The Smithsonian American Art Museum is a museum in Washington, D.C. with an extensive collection of American art.
Part of the Smithsonian Institution, the museum has a broad variety of American art that covers all regions and art movements found in the United States. and National Portrait Gallery National Portrait Gallery can refer to:
