FITERMAN HALL AT

BMCC

New York, NY

PROJECT SCOPE

In 2001, DGA completed work with Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer on Fiterman Hall: a 230,000 SF, $36 million adaptive reuse of a 1950s-era office building by Howe and Lescaze into a new adjunct teaching facility for BMCC, NYC’s largest undergraduate institution. That building was severely damaged during the 9/11 attack at the WTC only weeks before its grand opening and was subsequently demolished. Thereafter, DGA worked with architects Pei Cobb Freed on the new LEED Certified Fiterman Hall,  completed in 2014.
