Restoration Hardware Project 101 Building at Pier 70
The upscale home furnishing retailer Restoration Hardware will be the first tenant at Pier 70. The Nibbi Brothers General Contractors were commissioned to renovate this historically significant building. In addition to the existing building renovation, a 2-story Café building (hybrid structure with conventional moment frame steel framing) with an interior courtyard area will be connected to Building 101. The project included a complete Building 101 renovation, including tenant improvement for a proposed retail store. The existing roof was completely demolished and replaced to allow for construction of a new roof terrace and conservatory structure above. Olson Steel provided the structural steel and retrofit for the building, such as retrofit of existing select steel columns and beams, metal decking for the roof terrace, and miscellaneous and ornamental metals.
