195 Broadway Lobby, Retail Spaces and Galleria

Sciame was the Construction Manager responsible for the construction and renovation of the new lobby at 195 Broadway. The building itself is a 29-story building on Broadway between Dey Street and Fulton. It was the longtime headquarters of American Telephone and Telegraph (AT&T), as well as Western Union for a time. The lobby, which was landmarked, had 44 granite columns and a coffer ceiling. The lobby currently acts as the main entrance for all tenants and visitors.

Sciame converted the main lobby space into 3 retails spaces while recreating a new main lobby on Dey street. Sciame installed 30’ high glass partitions that separate each retails space as well as the new main lobby, glass vitrines, new staircases and 2 new glass elevators. The project included upgrading the lobby’s mechanical system and lighting while re-installing it’s landmarked chandeliers. Sciame also installed a sprinkler system in the main lobby and retail spaces and relocated its main security desk. In addition, Sciame constructed new mechanical rooms in the cellar that support the new retail spaces.
