DMR Architects has launched a dedicated practice for projects in New York City, where it has a growing pipeline after having already completed hundreds of designs over more than 15 years.
The Hasbrouck Heights-based firm said Pradeep Kapoor, its chief operating officer, will lead what’s known as DMR NY Architects. The team will support a current pipeline of more than 50 projects in the city and what figures to be continued growth there, thanks to its longstanding relationship with the New York City School Construction Authority, for which it has completed more than 350 projects with a construction value exceeding $1 billion.
“Historically, we have expanded our practice areas in anticipation of need,” said Lloyd Rosenberg, CEO and president of DMR Architects. “The development environment throughout the tristate area is very strong and warrants DMR taking its commitment to creative vision, persistent energy and dynamic ideas that our New Jersey practice areas have been providing for more than 30 years into new markets.”
The firm noted that, since 2006, it has completed assignments of varying scale in technical complexity and cost magnitude for the New York City School Construction Authority, according to a news release. Its portfolio includes a $19 million restoration to J.H.S. 162 in Brooklyn, which was built in 1909, along with extensive interior and exterior upgrades to the art deco-inspired P.S. 269 in Brooklyn and to the 110,0000-square-foot P.S. 81M in Manhattan.
“DMR NY will add a new dynamic to the marketplace by offering New York’s lower peninsula clients the same end-to-end in-house capabilities that we have been providing in New Jersey and New York City,” said Kapoor, who will serve as president of DMR NY. “I am honored and excited to lead our team into new geographic and artistic territory.”
In addition to Kapoor, Lloyd Rosenberg and fellow DMR Partner Kurt Vierheilig will round out the DMR NY leadership team.
