Commercial Observer Names HOK to List of Most Influential Architecture Firms in New York City
HOK’s New York office is featured on Commercial Observer’s list of “power designers” in New York City.
“Together with engineering firm WSP, HOK is designing the new 1.3-million-sq.-ft. LaGuardia Airport Central Terminal B, which will replace the aging 1964 terminal building. WSP and HOK are part of the LaGuardia Gateway Partners team with Vantage Airport Group, Skanska and Meridiam which won the bid for the $4 billion LaGuardia Airport renovation project—the first public-private partnership aviation project in the United States.”
“The 35-gate terminal will be modernized and will ‘redefine the passenger experience…and position it among the world’s best airports,’ said Carl Galioto, HOK’s president and managing principal of the New York and Philadelphia offices.”
“HOK is also providing advisory services to the Port Authority in the planning of the redesign for the entire airport. As a company, HOK has been striving to reduce energy use across its portfolio and expects to achieve a carbon-neutral design by 2030.”
“Other designs the company completed or is working on in New York City include the offices for media company GroupM’s nearly 700,000-square-foot headquarters in 3 World Trade Center (above) and an 18-story condominium at 147-151 East 86th Street for Ceruzzi Properties and Kuafu Properties. HOK is also the architect of record for NewYork-Presbyterian’s new 17-story, 733,500-square-foot ambulatory care center on the Upper East Side.”
