The National Comedy Center in Jamestown, New York, is home to the country’s foremost archive of the history and art form of comedy. The groundbreaking museum is housed, in part, in the historic Jamestown Gateway Station building. Built between 1930 and 1932, the station featured custom steel windows as part of its chic Art Deco design. As a result, it was a natural choice to provide steel replacement windows for the historic building as well as steel windows and doors for the new construction when the comedy center redeveloped the site.
Construction has begun on Radio Tower and Hotel, a mixed-use, high-rise in northern Manhattan. The 22-story building is global architecture firm MVRDV’s first major project in the Unites States. It combines hotel, retail, and office functions in stacked blocks, and will reflect the character of the neighborhood, as well as set a direction for the future development of the area.
