Restored Union Square Pavilion Opens
The Beaux Arts pavilion in Union Square Park was fully restored and opened as a restaurant this summer. The pavilion's original Ionic limestone columns were significantly damaged. LERA engineered a solution that allowed the removal and replacement of only the top portion of the columns. The new design solution blends seamlessly with the original structure. Combining modern and historic construction methods and materials, gave new life to the historic building. The project includes new support spaces and public facilities as well as a new plaza and playground. The Pavilion is a seasonal restaurant, so grab a table while you can.
