GAP Inc. celebrated its biggest-ever grand opening with their new flagship GAP and Old Navy stores in Manhattan’s Times Square. Built simultaneously by Schimenti Construction, the two stores occupy 70,000 sf of high-profile space formerly filled by the five story Toys R Us flagship store.

The GAP Times Square is located at 1530 Broadway at the intersection of Seventh Avenue and West Forty-Fourth Street, a spot visited by more than 50 million people each year.

Key design elements include a structural steel and glass elevator in the two-level atrium, feature lighting including multi-colored programmable LEDs behind a blue polycarbonate curtain wall system, and a recessed linear LED fixture at the perimeter of each sales area. Also defining the sales areas are a newly designed wood millwork package featuring illuminated wall fixtures. The wood plank colored porcelain tile flooring brings both a natural look and high durability. GAP shoppers can relax while powering up at a “Chill & Charge” station. Behind the scenes, a rooftop package including cooling towers, fresh air units, and a self-contained boiler room keep the temperature comfortable for shoppers and workers.

Challenges included managing security and safety around the foot traffic in Times Square, constructing and maintaining a 60-foot tall temporary scaffold system that wrapped around the entire façade, and the logistics of installing six escalators and three elevators.
