Several low-lying buildings in the trendy Chelsea section of Manhattan were demolished to make way for construction of a new 8-story, 50-unit mixed-use apartment building. The project, located on 8th Avenue between 16th & 17th Streets posed all of the typical urban site challenges, including a subway entrance, below grade vaults and a bike lane. FT installed pre-fabricated exterior wall panels efficiently under demanding conditions.
