Undertaking projects of all sizes, scopes and complexity levels with the same commitment, enthusiasm and attention to detail, the office has managed more than 1,750 projects representing more than 200 million square feet since its inception.

The New York office utilizes a partnership-based project management approach that fosters collaborative work environments through the integration of entire project teams. This approach is made possible by the expertise of the office’s 400+ professionals and their dedication to working within transparent teams to ensure cost and schedule certainty while upholding the highest standards of safety, sustainability and quality.

As one of the top seven contractors in New York for the past 19 years - ENR New York (2004 - 2022), the office also offers metropolitan area clients in depth knowledge of government/regulatory agencies; a robust compliance program; significant negotiating and buying power; established relationships with local contracting communities and material and
labor suppliers; and access to minority, women and disadvantaged business enterprises.

The New York office’s significant track record of successfully delivering signature projects was born in 1984 after receiving a contract to restore the Statue of Liberty in advance of its 1986 centennial. Other notable regional projects followed, including: the Restoration of Ellis Island, Metro Tech Center, the World Trade Center Disaster Recovery, the Revitalization of Grand Central Terminal and New York Hospital’s Greenberg Pavilion over FDR Drive.

Lendlease’s commitment to the delivery of renowned New York projects as well as the preservation and restoration of the metropolitan area’s landmarks continues to thrive. The 21st Century has seen the New York office complete the National September 11 Memorial and Museum, Time Warner Center (now One Columbus Circle), and CitiField; manage multi-faceted capital programs for NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, New York University Langone Medical Center and Northwell Health; embark upon Phase I of Columbia University’s Manhattanville in West Harlem Development; and help reshape the City’s skyline with 432 Park Avenue, the tallest building in the West Hemisphere at time of completion and Central Park Tower, 217 West 57th Street, the tallest all residential building in the world.
