SWA Architecture Weekly Blog

Hello and welcome back to a special Friday rolling blog coming your way fresh from SWA Architecture.  For all you first timers to this blog we like to cover all different sorts of projects that SWA Architecture has been a part of.  SWA Architecture is a very reputable architecture firm located in Manhattan and overlooks projects all over the East coast.




This post we want to take a look at a project we have previously looked at.  Sort of.  Let me explain.  So right around last thanksgiving we showed you a project that was in the design phase.  The post showed you a rendering of what we hoped to erect in upper Manhattan.  It was going to be a huge 14 story multi use building.  Problem was, the community did not much appreciate a building coming in and blocking their views. But, like a great architecture firm, after meeting with community and city agencies we decided to go with a building that is lower and would not obstruct these nice views across the Hudson river.




We are a very malleable firm in the sense that we can change to whatever the client needs us to be.  SWA Architecture are the architects, planners, designers, zoning and code experts for this project.  This is the third project with this client.  Another project we have done with them is 4 St Marks, which we have previously blogged about.  The pictures above and below show the project getting ready for construction.



That's it for the SWA Architecture special Friday rolling blog.  Stay tuned next week for some wonderful projects coming your way!  Also, give us a follow on instagram - @swa_architecture to see all the wonderful projects we have done.

SWA Architecture Weekly Blog

Hello and welcome back to an all new special Friday rollin' blog coming your way from SWA Architecture.  Earlier this week we took a look at a new beautiful building being erected at 86 Delancey.  This special post is giving you an update on a project we looked at about a month ago.




I am of course speaking of the project located at 12 W 19th Street.  Last time we took a look this project it was just beginning the undergoing its restoration.  As you can tell by the photos now it still has a long way to go but it coming along very nicely.




This project is located in the "Ladies Mile" district.  For those of you unaware of what this district is, here is a brief refresher on the subject.  The "Ladies Mile" was a prime shopping district in Manhattan at the end of the 19th century, serving well to do 'carriage trade' of the city.  It extends roughly 15th street to 24th street and from park avenue south to west of 6th Avenue.




SWA Architecture are the architects, interior designers, expediters and landmarks architects for this historical building.  This is our first job with this client and hope to do more with them in the future.  This is our sixth project with Streamline Worldwide General Contractors.  We have a great relationship with this contracting company.  Lastly, this is our third project in the "Ladies Mile" district and we are very proud of all of them.



That's it for this weeks SWA Architecture weekly blog.  Stay tuned for some great posts coming your way next.  Give us a follow on instagram to see all our beautiful projects - @swa_architecture and like the pictures you see!

SWA Architecture Weekly Blog

Hello and welcome back to the SWA Architecture weekly blog.  We have had some scorching hot posts this summer and we want to keep it rolling with this bad boy.  For those of you new to this blog what took you so long?  In all seriousness this blog gives an inside perspective on some wonderful projects that SWA Architecture has worked on.




From time to time we like to check back in to big projects that we have previously posted about.  This week we check back in to 86 Delancey.  Check out that view from the picture above.  Not too shabby.  We late looked at this project at the end of April and it has come a long way from there.  Now as you can see the walls are being put up, yet we still have a ways to go.  This is our fourth time here and this project will be a part of the new Delancey Street Redevelopment.




This is our eighth project with this client.  The biggest compliment and validation for a job well done is when the client comes back for another project.  It looks like we're doing a great job.  SWA Architecture is responsible for the architecture, expediting and design for this ground up multi use building.  We always like to highlight that one of our architects, Sergio Ali, Under saw everything that went into this project.




That's it for this weeks SWA Architecture blog.  Stay tuned for a very cool bonus post coming your way later this week.  Also, don't forget to give us a follow on instagram - @swa_architecture to see all the wonderful work we've done.

SWA Architecture Weekly Blog

Hello and welcome back to the SWA Architecture weekly blog.  For those of you who missed last week, we covered a number of historical landmarked projects.  We are proud of each and every one of them.  From time to time on this blog we like to update you on projects that we have posted about before.  This week we do just that and show you a huge projects with our largest client.







As you can tell by the photos we are updating you on McDonalds.  This is going to be a flagship McDonalds located at the heart of Times Square at 1530 Broadway.  Last time we covered this project it was still under construction and had a painted facade rendition outside of what it will look like.   





Now as you can see it is open to the public and looks beautiful.  SWA architecture is responsible for expediting this very complex project.  This is a multilevel McDonalds in a very high traffic area.  SWA was also involved in the Toys 'R Us space which existed in this space previously.  This McDonalds project is on of over 800 McDonalds projects SWA has somehow been a part of.  





That's it for this week's SWA Architecture blog.  Stay tuned for a very cool bonus post coming your way that'll take a look at multiple projects.  Also, give us a follow on instagram - @swa_architecture to see all our wonderful projects.
