The New York Public Library commissioned this addition to the branch library for Stapleton, Staten Island. The existing 4,500 square foot 1907 Carrere and Hastings Carnegie Library was renovated with a new 8,000 square foot building located alongside.
The residential development at Queens Plaza North between 23rd and 24th Street in Long Island City has topped out. GMS is providing structural engineering and building envelope services for this new, 319,000 sf, twenty-one story high residential building.
Several award-winning GMS projects are being spotlighted this year on Archtober’s “Building of the Day” tours, including Stapleton Library, Tavern on the Green and Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse at JFK.
