Construction Tour: Times Square Theater

Construction is underway at the restoration and renovation of the Times Square Theater at 215 West 42nd Street from Stillman Development International and Daishin Securities. Led by Beyer Blinder Belle, the renovation will convert the original 1920’s theater structure by architect Eugene DeRosa into a 5-story, 52,000 square foot retail/entertainment/restaurant space with an outdoor terrace on the third and fourth floors with views of 42nd Street. Colliers International will oversee leasing.

As part of the renovation, the original Indiana limestone façade will be lifted by five feet and a 23-foot tall glass overlook constructed at the second floor, cantilevering out over the street. The theater’s proscenium arch and ceiling dome will also be restored by experts offsite and repositioned in the newly renovated space.

Architect: Beyer Blinder Belle; Developers: Stillman Development International with Daishin Securities; Program: Retail/Entertainment/Restaurant; Location: Times Square, New York, NY; Completion: 2020.
