The Wheeler

LEED Gold Base Building Upgrades, MEPS & Critical Infrastructure, Lobbies

Location 181 Livingston St, Brooklyn, NY

Project Size 586,000 SF

JRM Construction Management provided full pre-construction and construction management services for a 586,000 SF, $200 Million commercial office building expansion and conversion. Developed by Tishman Speyer, the Wheeler building is located at 181 Livingston Street in Brooklyn, New York.

The LEED Gold project entailed construction of a 300 ft tall commercial office tower and overbuild above Macy’s original building which rose to a height of 6-stories with work being completed while maintaining Macy’s normal retail store hours.

A new entrance and lobby were built as well as a new 10-passenger car elevator core and shear wall with a service car to serve all floors. All new electrical, plumbing, sprinkler and HVAC systems were installed throughout the space.

An all new curtainwall and window wall combination façade package were installed along with JRM overseeing the removal and restoration of the 150-year old cast iron façade on the Fulton Street entrance.
