Description:

135 Bowery is an 8-story building set in lower Manhattan near Sara D. Roosevelt Park. The mixed-use building has commercial retail space on the ground floor and loft office space on the floors above.

Stratford Engineering was in charge of designing the foundation and superstructure of the building. The foundation consists of mat slabs and cast-in-place reinforced concrete walls which support the steel superstructure above. The floors are a steel framed composite metal deck system, and the lateral design for the superstructure is a dual system - steel moment frames in the front and rear of the building, and cast-in-place reinforced concrete shear walls along the core of the structure.
