Acheson Doyle worked with the Archdiocese of New York and New York University to oversee the re-development of this property. The existing complex was demolished and ADP worked with the NYU Facilities department to transfer development rights. ADP was responsible for overall master planning and ground floor design. The new complex includes a lounge space, chapel and auditorium and is LEED Silver Certified. ADP coordinated presentations to the New York City Planning Commission and the Board of Standards and Appeals for the new building.
ADP organized the ground floor Catholic Center with the Chapel overlooking Washington Square Park to take advantage of views and to engage the public. A grand day lit corridor serves as both narthex to the Chapel and connecting spine to other program elements. The clean, modern interiors are enhanced by the selective use of richly finished venetian plaster, walnut wood panel and marble and porcelain tiles.
