New Construction
Brooklyn, NY
  • Pre-construction identified challenges early
  • Zero impact on neighbors
  • Very difficult logistics/constructibility
  • 100 year old firehouse
  • 2 levels below grade,
  • 3 levels above grade.

As the Construction Manager of the Kings Highway five-story retail and office building with two underground parking garages, Aurora was able to partner closely with the owner during pre-construction. Our experience and strategic thinking allowed us to deliver the aesthetics the owner desired on an aggressive construction schedule. Features of the build included:

  • Three level above-grade precast parking garage with 300 spaces, automated ticketing and a partially enclosed roof structure
  • Garage features two entrances in a heavily congested area
  • Aurora managed communications with various agencies including NYC Building Department, DOT, DEP, Con Ed, etc. to expedite key permits, and street and sidewalk closures
  • Crane operation, and heavy construction along sidewalks
  • Continual dewatering on site
  • Intricate shoring plans and sheet piling were used to ensure rapid and safe construction
  • Project also included a 235,000 SF mixed-use building with a below grade parking garage
  • Second parking garage was 2 floors below grade with 45,000 SF of parking
  • Steel structure with cast-in-place walls and floors below 3 floors of mixed-use space
  • Construction posed no negative effect on the neighboring buildings including a NYC Fire Station that remained open during construction
  • Projects completed on schedule
