Times Square Tower is a 49-story, 1.2 million square foot skyscraper that encompasses a full block site at 42nd and Seventh Avenue.

This project included building a subway entrance within the footprint of the building. Two floors of the station were renovated and passengers diverted away from construction without disturbing access to trains. The New York City Transit Authority required the station to open prior to completion of the base building and storefront.

The logistical  challenges of the site made coordination with the New York Police Department essential. Surrounding streets were closed during the picking of steel and mechanical equipment as well as erection and dismantling of cranes. Activities were scheduled for Saturdays, Sundays and after-hours to avoid interfering with pedestrians during rush hour.
