5 Ways JB&B is Building NYC’s Future

Jaros, Baum & Bolles has been helping to build the great city we know today since 1915. Here are a few of the top projects JB&B is lending their expertise to:

1) The Whitney Museum of American ArtWhitney Museum

The Whitney, in its new location in the Meatpacking District, introduces more New Yorkers to a bigger and better cultural destination. The $720 million project includes state-of-the-art facilitates for enhanced education and performing arts programs. The 9-floor, 200,000 square foot building offers a more extensive collection of modern art with spaces designed to better connect the viewer to the art.

2) Moynihan Station
Moynihan Station

After almost two decades of planning the construction of the Moynihan Station is near the end of its first phase. The project will transform the James A. Farley Post Office on 31st Street and 8th Avenue into the city’s next transportation hub.

The project, which broke ground in 2010, is set to complete its first phase of construction in the fall of 2016, with a proposed $1 billion budget to improve the city’s infrastructure and make the commute for over 9.5 million annual riders a little smoother.

3) Hudson Yards
Hudson Yards

The new neighborhood, Hudson Yards, will bring office space, residential buildings and retail opportunities closer to the Far West Side. The site, which is currently being constructed along Tenth, Eleventh and Twelfth Avenues, will sit on top of the Hudson Rail Yards.

The neighborhood is also the site of the 7 Line subway expansion, which will make access to developing communities on the Far West Side easier. Hudson Yards is set to be completed in 2018.

4) World Trade Center

The revitalization of Lower Manhattan is largely attributed to the reconstruction of the World Trade Center. The site, which holds tremendous meaning for all New Yorkers, is home to a new wave of businesses.

JB&B’s work on WTC One, 2, 3, 4 & 7 as well as on the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, helped to reclaim the district and redefined what it means to be a New Yorker.

 5) Public Safety Answering Center II
Public Safety and Answering Center II

Safety is what keeps our city running. The city’s second emergency communications dispatch center, located in the Bronx, is meant to provide support to NYC’s bravest in the event of a natural disaster or large-scale emergency. The joint operation, led by the NYPD, FDNY,  and NYCDOITT,  provides a centralized location for emergency response throughout the entire city. The blast-resistant building was designed as a perfect square with minimal windows for security.
