Increasing accessibility to the highly trafficked station located one stop from Midtown Manhattan.

Following New York City zoning requirements, some new buildings are required to provide transit improvements on large developments or in specific areas of the city. In response to this, the subway improvements at 23-15 44th Drive (Skyline Tower) in Long Island City, Queens, includes the relocation of an existing subway station stair entrance to within the property and the inclusion of a new street level to platform level elevator. The aim is to provide American with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility to the Manhattan-bound E/M platform by relocating the street utilities and modifying the existing station infrastructure as required to provide the relocated entrance and connection to existing platform.

Our team is working in collaboration with the 23-15 44th Drive (Skyline Tower) developer (Risland / United Construction / FSA Capital), building architects (Hill West), structural engineers (DeSimone Consulting Engineers), and MEP engineers (Cosentini Associates) to provide a seamless connection from the New York City Transit station to the new entrance within the building and improve ADA accessibility at the station. We’re in charge of final design, construction documents, and construction support associated with the subway improvements.
