Rockefeller Group International, on June 10, completed a $12.2 million renovation of multiple floors at 1271 Avenue of the Americas, formally known as the Time-Life Building, in Midtown West.
The plans, pre-filed on August 23, 2018, called for a renovation of the cellar, sub-cellar, and floors five through 10 of the 574-foot tall, 47-story, building.
The project is described in the filings as: Alt 2 for interior renovation on floors cellar, sub-cellar, five thru 10 as per plans filed herewith. No change is use, egress, or occupancy. The initial cost as reported in the DOB filing for the work described in this permit application is $12,206,894.
The completion of this project does not mean it’s time to rest. Rockefeller filed plans for a $17.8 million change in use to parts of three floors of the building on June 8. Additionally, on March 17 the firm filed plans for a $13 million interior build-out on floors 34, 36, 37 and 38 of the building, and on May 7 more plans were filed for a $21.1 million rehab of several floors of the building. Those earlier plans are still awaiting permits.
The work was done by Studios Architecture, according to the application on record.
