Wilmington, MA – Trinity Building + Construction Management Corp., a Mass.-based general contracting and construction management firm, recently completed construction of The Skylark at 200 W 39th Street in the heart of New York City’s fashion district. This multilevel restaurant, bar and lounge perched high above the city streets features an outdoor patio offering stunning panoramic views of midtown Manhattan and the Hudson River. Trinity built The Skylark in partnership with designer Meyer Davis Studio and Stys Hospitality Initiative over a 20 week construction schedule.
Construction was executed on five levels: the cellar, ground level, 30th, 31st and 32nd floors. Unique design elements include integrated finishes, interstitial staircases throughout the space, Bendheim tinted mirror walls that reflect the skyline and glazed brick wall tile. The main bar is upholstered in tufted vinyl panels with a leather clad bar top. The Skylark features floor to ceiling windows, custom lighting on a Lutron dimming system and a high end furniture package influenced by the surrounding fashion district. The bathroom is equipped with steel mirrored vanities and a 1,200 pound cast stone wash basin. The Skylark’s rooftop terrace boasts a cast concrete bar, concrete pavers, Alucobond wall panels, multiple outdoor heating units and a weatherproof flat screen television.
The space was logistically challenging for the team and the sequence of work was critical. Active staircases needed to be shut down to allow for work to be completed while still providing access to adjacent building tenants.
“We could not have been more pleased with the way The Skylark came to life and the ease with which construction took place. The Trinity team were consummate professionals and treated the project with the care and attention to detail it deserved. In the end The Skylark is truly a one-of-a-kind venue and we owe a great deal to the team that built it,” said Brian Stys of Stys Hospitality Initiative.
In spite of the challenges the Trinity team delivered the project as promised and exceeded client expectations.
