The Standard, East Village
LERA was the structural engineer for this 21-story, 145-room glass-and-steel hotel with a gross area of approximately 100,000 sf (9,300 sm), including two full basements. Clad in an aluminum and fritted glass curtain wall and tightly situated between an existing bar and tenement building, the building billows outward as it rises, giving it a dynamic sculptural form.
The project also included a partial demolition and rehabilitation of an existing apartment building and the complete demolition and rebuild of an existing 1-story building with one basement at the backyard of the existing apartment building.
