Location 225 Liberty St, New York, NY
Project Size 73,000 SF
JRM Construction Management completed Convene’s venue space at 225 Liberty Street in Brookfield Place. JRM worked collaboratively with Design Republic and Henderson Engineers over the course of five months to deliver a flexible, modern space for dynamic events. Convene developed a design for their new space that reflects the organization’s collaborative work environments as well as lends the ability to create innovative and intimate events. The flagship venue boasts 73,000 SF of space, making it one of the largest event venues in Manhattan’s Battery Park City. The JRM and Convene teams worked closely to implement an expedited schedule in order to transform the former Saks Fifth Avenue space in a short, 16-week period. This close collaboration helped the seamless completion of three separate areas that required TCO sign-offs.
JRM also installed a full catering kitchen equipped with top-of-the-line appliances, including a precipitator, black iron duct, a large grease interceptor, Ansels systems and gas, as well as removed four large escalators to accommodate six event spaces. The multi-floor location features two large event spaces with connecting gallery spaces, four hubs designed for smaller gatherings, a curved feature stair with Terrazzo treads along with a Full For Five retail coffee shop and café.
