AVA managed a lobby renovation, common area corridor, and bathroom project for Winthrop Management in 2013.  After soliciting bids to multiple architects for design development and project implementation, Gensler Architects was awarded the project.  The lobby design included a new security desk, cladding of existing marble columns with stainless steel, new lighting, cladding of the perimeter walls with white glass panels over the existing marble, installation of Mecho Shades at all windows in the atrium, guest seating, new exterior signage, and a new custom entry mat system.  As part of the corridor and bathroom renovations, all wallcoverings from both bathrooms and corridors were removed and the walls were painted, replaced lighting and carpet throughout, new acoustical tile, added a soffit above the elevator doors to provide more direct light.  The General Contractor for this project was Norcon.
