PARKER JEWISH INSTITUTE MASTER PLANNING & CURTAIN WALL RENOVATION
Location: New York, NY
Size: 381,000 SF
TPD has had the honor of working with Parker Jewish Institute, a 527 bed skilled nursing residence, since 2003 in the development and implementation of the multiple year master plan encompassing many elements of Parker’s facility. Currently, in various phases of planning are the following projects; the addition of a new residential unit with 22 beds, the facade and window renovation project including high energy efficient windows and glazing, the introduction of a new protective walkway canopy and port cochere, new cafeteria, servery, staff dining facility, and private family dining room, expanded Alzheimer’s Day Care facility, the renovation of 324 resident rooms and building wide infrastructure and mechanical upgrades. Estimated project costs $55M.
The modernization of a 45-year-old façade involved extensive planning, feasibility and implementation studies with ongoing coordination between Tobin Parnes, the owners, engineers and contractors. The final result is a new exterior building envelope, designed to be built without disruption to the occupants and resulting in a greatly improved interior environment.
