Our new 1,500sf office space on 26th street & Avenue of the Americas is clearly the start to something real for DCC on the East Coast. Last Thursday night guests gathered to officially kick-off this permanent status in the red brick loft space. The open layout accented by the blackened steel frames and maple floors lends to an inviting atmosphere that will no doubt be an attractive place for employees and partners to review plans, send emails or just share a low-key conversation. Either way, DCC New York is no longer just an idea – we are here to stay.
In their latest fit-out DCC has teamed up with UK based luxury life style brand, The White Company. This 6,300sf project took 13 weeks from start to finish and is The White Company’s US flagship. It encompasses a ground-floor sales area, a basement level, stock and administration area. One of the standout features of this store, are the 17 foot tall columns that were kept from the original space and incorporated into an updated and airy design, accented by millwork and glass archways, supplied by DCC. Dickinson Cameron teamed up with De La Garza Architecture LLC on this Landmark project, to bring The White Company’s first U.S. location to life. This project is notable for its high-profile location in the heart of the shopping district at 155 5th Avenue within Flatiron and represents yet another DCC Built landmark in the City.
Dickinson Cameron was excited to participate for the second year in OSHA’s National Fall Prevention Stand-Down May 8th through the 12th by having our projects nationwide pause during the workday for discussions, safety trainings in hazard recognition and fall prevention.
Dickinson Cameron’s restaurant construction teams have been busy building! Most recently we have completed Yard House at The Battery Atlanta which marks the 11th restaurant DCC has delivered for the California brand. We are excited for our Yard House under-construction projects in Sunrise, Florida, Irving, Texas and Carlsbad, California. We also have projects under-construction with Eureka! at San Diego State University, Fleming’s Steakhouse in Santa Clara, California and two ground-up projects for Lazy Dog in Denver, Colorado.
Dickinson Cameron’s long standing relationship with Tiffany & Co. spans over the last 17 years and the Union Square San Francisco Flagship is our latest example of dedication to the iconic brand. The 20-month open store modern remodel includes both interior and exterior makeovers. Some details include an expanse of glass at the storefront which looks out on Union Square. Just inside the entry the second floor structure was removed to create a semi-circular vaulted area more than 23 feet high. Some other features include the curved grand staircase, eight-20 feet tall illuminated custom carved blue wheatleaf glass at the display windows and a custom curved balustrade on the second floor. This project is led by Senior Project Manager Eddy Barth whose collaboration with MBH Architects will bring this to full completion by April 2017.
This beautiful store is a milestone for both Dickinson Cameron and Apple as it replaces one of Apple’s first original stores and showcases the collaboration DCC had with the design build of the project.
Said best by Apple designer Jony Ive, Apple’s new design “…starts with the storefront – taking transparency to a whole new level – where the building blends the inside and the outside, breaking down barriers and making it more egalitarian and accessible.”
Dickinson Cameron looks forward to building more of these real-world retail destinations.
Dickinson Cameron’s strong partnership with Chanel continued this month with the unveiling of three stores just in time for holiday shopping. Chanel concepts in Hawaii and New Jersey received an update and expansion to include exciting firsts for the brand. The Hawaiian Islands project includes two boutiques at the Ala Moana Center with a modernized look reflecting the brand’s current retail aesthetic created by architect Peter Marino. In addition to the Hawaii store updates, Chanel introduced their first-ever stand-alone shoe boutique, not coincidentally in the home of the first-ever U.S. Chanel store opened in Waikiki in 1983. At 1,100-square-feet, the shoe boutique features a custom 24-karat gold leaf display wall and work by local artists.
The Mall at Short Hills, NJ rounds out our trio of projects for Chanel. DCC relocated and doubled the size of the previous store, allowing for an expanded range of products, including the a new ready to wear collection, in the new 6,400-square-foot retail space.
DCC’s lasting partnership with Chanel is a testament to the type of relationship our company establishes and maintains with our clients. These exciting new stores feature groundbreaking work for a brand that does not compromise on quality and innovation.
Tender Greens, an emerging healthy fast casual concept, has chosen DCC to create their last three locations. Their most recent restaurant, in Westwood, marks a new look for the brand that takes their elevated dining philosophy into the space itself.
Located within a historic building in the neighborhood near UCLA, the 1931 building, designed by Architect Howard Wells, proved a unique canvas for incorporating the environmentally friendly aesthetic of Tender Greens’ other restaurants. With a large scale skylight in the main dining room, and signature brick work and archways, an indoor/outdoor feel was created to generate the feeling of the original open air patio that had been enclosed by past occupants.
DCC worked to maintain and reinvent the original architectural features of the building, while also creating a clean and modern feel that mirrors the Tender Greens menu. Westwood officially opened in Summer 2016 and the design will roll out to other markets as Tender Greens continues its rapid expansion.
