Interior Fitout, Retail
25,000 square feet

605 West 181st Street, Washington Heights, NY
The new “Power Store” more than triples the store’s former footprint. Before any interior renovations could be made, the entire masonry building (built in 1920) underwent major structural and mechanical upgrades including; a new roof (removing an old skylight), installation of a new 3-stop elevator, and new HVAC units. Coordination with utilities for gas and electric was essential in bringing services into the building. The storefront pays homage to Washington Heights in the form of a mural featuring symbols emblematic to the area.
