Levien & Co. completes $4.2m renovation for food provider.

Levien & Co. has completed a $4.2 million renovation for Yorkville Common Pantry (YCP), an emergency food provider at 8 East 109th Street in Manhattan, announces Kenneth Levien, president of Levien & Co. Inc., the project management firm representing the owners.

One of many projects for nonprofits undertaken by Levien & Co., the 10,000 s/f renovation began in July 2006.

The space, which was built in the 1960s, was originally used as a large gymnasium. In 1981, YCP began using the space as a food pantry. Prior to the renovation, the interior of the building consisted of a double-height gym with office space above. Levien helped transform the space into a three-story building by splitting the space vertically.

Now, YCP is equipped with a full commercial grade kitchen and dining area, storage and administrative space, as well as an area with sanitary facilities and showers.

"The new building will provide Yorkville Common Pantry and its volunteers with an efficient and accessible, well-constructed and clean space that will help them to better serve the community," says Bonnie Andersen, the Levien project manager for the renovation.

Yorkville Common Pantry was founded in 1981 by a coalition of churches and synagogues in New York City. Its mission is to reduce hunger and promote dignity and self-sufficiency.

"Thanks to the care and competency of Levien & Co., our building has undergone a major transformation," says Carolann Johns, executive director of YCP.

The project team included: Levien & Co.; Watson + Associates, architect; Collado Engineering, engineer; Eipel Barbieri, structural engineer; and Kel-mar Interiors, general contractor.
