How Severud engineers are going to lift historic Palace Theater as part of $2B retail development

In a first in the United States, a theater will be permanently raised off the ground and tucked into the new $2.5 billion TSX Tower in Times Square.

“We are certainly no strangers to complex structural engineering projects, but this is one of the most complex assignments we have ever undertaken in our 90-year history,” said Cawsie Jijina, principal at Severud Associates, the consulting engineering firm entrusted with the complex assignment by developers L&L Holding Company and Maefield Development.
