Milrose was brought on to provide code and zoning consulting and municipal permit expediting services on a four-year multi-phased full renovation to Macy’s Herald Square. The renovation project consisted of a 100,000 square-foot expansion, bringing the total retail space in the flagship store to 1.2 million square-feet. Originally built in 1902, the last renovation took place in 1932.
Population density, based on the fact that the building is under the 1938 building code The store remained open and operating during construction The final C of O needed to be obtained before Black Friday.
Proper pre-project planning enabled us to obtain the initial permit ahead of schedule and meet the client’s Black Friday target date where at least 15,000 people waited outside the flagship store for its opening.
