STUDIOS is currently repositioning The Blanchard Building at 21-09 Borden Avenue. Related Management Company contracted STUDIOS to complete a renovation of the building—currently used for storage—into office and retail space that will attract new tenants. The Blanchard Building, which sits at the edge of the developing neighborhood of Hunters Point, offers a tremendous opportunity to create world-class commercial office space catering to today’s technology, advertising, and media tenants. STUDIOS design includes a new lobby and courtyard, ground floor retail space, core upgrades, and schematic designs for office floors.

STUDIOS also completed master plan studies of the surrounding area. The study included eight buildings, six clustered together and two on the water. The study included pedestrian, vehicular and subway access; green space; site circulation; retail opportunities; and zoning. STUDIOS also developed concepts for the pedestrian bridge which links The Paragon with The Blanchard Building and its neighbors.
