GF collaborated with developer MADDD Equities LLC on Trader Joe’s newest grocery store in New York City. Located underneath the Queensboro Bridge on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, the cavernous unique space known as Bridgemarket, is a designated individual Landmark in the City as well as listed on the National Registry and is for its 21,000-square-foot Guastavino-tiled vaulted ceilings and terracotta clad column arcade which create a ‘cathedral-like’ Gothic space.

GF’s urban architecture team successfully navigated the design review through New York City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission’s Public Hearing and worked with the Trader Joe’s corporate team to implement the approved submission. The basis of design accentuates the verticality of the interior space by minimizing height and orientation of the mezzanine, relieves the transparent curtain wall for multiple clear vistas throughout, and conceals the mechanical design.
