BDG seized a unique opportunity to take part in the development of Manhattan’s booming industrial corner, located on the Upper Park Avenue extension. 1753 Park Avenue, between 121st and 122nd street, is a three level, 26,000 square foot, mixed use building. The building is the new manufacturing home for Fat Witch Bakery. Through the collaboration of BDG Construction and in-house architecture staff, a well-crafted, customized space cradles the company’s industrial baking appliances, executive offices, and packaging/shipping/receiving areas. The location provides a matchless opportunity for light industrial businesses, like Fat Witch, to be located in Manhattan while still allowing easy access to the surrounding Boroughs, Long Island, Westchester County and New Jersey. Anchoring the building is Safe Horizons, a non for profit organization that is an advocate for abuse and violence prevention, based in New York City. The development provided a blank canvas for Safe Horizons to implement a new prototype support center that could house all services they provide in one building. Working closely with BDG Construction and in-house architecture staff, the entire floor area was astutely planned to achieve this goal. This project was completed in partnership with The Daten Group.
