Project Description

This phase of the project included the removal of the existing main entrance and the construction of a new glass façade entrance on 42nd Street. The lobby is the first and most visible phase of a multimillion-dollar renovation and expansion of the historic building. The original structure is still visible behind the new façade in the new-meets-old design by BNIM Architects.

The multi-phased project will include a renovated 400-seat Mainstage theatre, expanded education spaces, additional costume and properties storage, new dressing rooms, administrative offices, green rooms, and updated systems.
