The Velez Organization provided owners representative services, and construction management services for the expansion and renovation of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center project. The owner’s representative and construction management services are being completed in association with Tishman Construction Corp.
The Javits Center expansion will increase exhibit space by the new construction of an adjacent Expo Center. Highlights also include a refurbished curtain wall and all new roof, and roof top mechanicals which will help to establish the new image of the Javits Center.
The plan upgraded, modernized and revitalized the existing Javits, whilst replacing existing mechanical systems and generally bring the facility into a state of good repair.
The existing Javits Center has approximately 790,000-square-feet of exhibition and meeting space and approximately 1.1 million square-feet of support and staging areas between West 34th and West 39th Streets from 11th to 12th Avenues in Manhattan.
