The renovation of the New York City Center Theater restored the main theater to its original grandeur, while a dance and theater academy, scene shops, offices, dressing rooms, and employee spaces received modern makeovers.  Sightlines and restrooms in the main theater were revamped and improved. 

The project earned a LEED CI Silver rating, as well as complied with New York City Local Law 86, mandating green city-owned buildings with over 20% reduction in regulated energy cost.  The project includes advanced features such as low-flow water fixtures, a new HVAC systems and façade enhancements, allowing a 14% energy savings over a ASHRAE 90.1-2004 baseline.  Also, low-emitting adhesives, sealants, paints, coatings, and carpet, reduce the project’s contribution to smog and enhance the air quality within the building.
