This specific McDonalds is located in the heart of Times Square at 1530 Broadway. This will be a landmark McDonalds in a the part of Manhattan with the most foot traffic. Fun little tidbit about Times Square, this area is called Times Square when in 1904 Albert Ochs, publisher of The New York Times, moved the newspaper's headquarters to a new skyscraper on what was then known as Longacre Square. Fair to say Times Square has a little bit more of a ring to it.
SWA Architecture is responsible for expediting this very complex project. This is a multilevel McDonalds in a very high traffic area. The pictures show the cellar, kitchen, first floor, second floor and mezzanine. SWA was also involved in the Toys 'R Us space which existed in this building previously. This McDonalds project is one over 800 projects that SWA Architecture is a part of. Again, we love working with McDonalds and they seem to love working with us too!
