Construction Contracts for the Conversion of a Social Services Facility
Having earlier participated as a member of a team that negotiated and drafted construction/lease agreements for the conversion of the former Bayview Women's Correctional Facility to "The Women's Building" offering numerous social services, we subsequently assisted their selected construction manger in connection with contract and subcontract agreements.
Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the state’s first-ever “Women’s Building” will be developed to unite more than a dozen women-focused organizations, empowering generations of women to come. The former Bayview Correctional Facility, a 100,000 square-foot space in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood, was to be renovated by the NoVo Foundation and Goren Group to include dedicated working space for women-centric community service organizations, as well as a restaurant, art gallery, and additional office space for technology and innovation tenants. The Women’s Building was planned to create more than 300 new jobs and generate an estimated $43 million in annual economic activity.
