Levien celebrates 10 years.
Current annual project value for the firm's eight professionals exceeds $400 million.
"We've done very well, despite the ups and downs of the past decade's real estate market, by strategically taking on select assignments and clients," says Levien. "When we note the economy slowing down, we take on more projects for nonprofit organizations that have already committed money to renovations and expansions; when the market is strong, we add significant commercial assignments. This counter-cyclical tactic has served us well."
Throughout the past decade, the firm has worked on a broad range of commercial and residential assignments, including interiors, multiple-location and multi-building phased projects, historic landmark restorations and technology installations. The firm has handled assignments for more than 100 clients, including Fortune 500 companies, Wall Street investment firms, various non-profits, universities, religious institutions, private schools, hospitality enterprises, retail, commercial and residential developers.
Current project management assignments include: The "Glasshouses for the Living Collections" at The New York Botanical Garden; construction of Columbia University's 12-story new K-8 Lab School and faculty housing; the conversion of the 250,000-SF warehouse building to apartments known as the 'Greenwich'; the St. James' Church renovation; the Harvard Club restoration and eight-story expansion; the Packer Collegiate Institute, Marymount and Calhoun School expansions and renovations; construction of the new 162-room Reingold Pavilion at the Hebrew Home for the Aged at Riverdale; renovations to the Eden Roc Hotel in Miami; the restacking of corporate interiors for Amerada Hess; and the new conference center at Hess's Woodbridge, N. J. campus.
