UNIQLO - Fifth Avenue Flagship Store
New York, New York

GMS served as the structural engineer and consulted on the curtainwall and interior glass design for Uniqlo USA’s global flagship store on Fifth Avenue and 53rd Street in Manhattan.  The store occupies 3 floors covering 89,000 square feet.  The design featured extensive reinforcing of the building lateral system in order to create an eight bay atrium opening on two floors, leading shoppers to the third floor retail area.  GMS also designed the support for the new elevators, escalators, specially detailed stairs with back-lit risers and some unique design features for this store including the platforms for rotating mannequins.
