101 Avenue of the Americas (the “Building”) was constructed between 1990 and 1992.
The Building contains 1 partial level below-grade and is supported on piles.
is reinforced concrete. Typical office floors have been designed for a
50 lbs/sf live load.
The Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning System for the Building consists of
perimeter fin tube hot water radiation, direct expansion variable air volume water cooled
air conditioning units, ventilation systems for toilet exhaust, fresh air supply, and smoke
1. Perimeter Fin Tube Hot Water Radiation System
The hot water for the perimeter hot water radiation system is provided by the use of two heat exchangers, which utilize Con Edison steam to generate the hot water which is circulated utilizing two hot water pumps. Please note that the 23rd floor is not provided with a perimeter fin tube radiation system. The tenant will provide fan powered boxes.
2. Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning Units
Each floor is serviced by a water cooled packaged A/C unit (“DX Unit”) with a 60 ton capacity on floors 2 through 6 and a 30 ton capacity on floors 7 through 22. All DX Units have heating coils for morning warm-up cycle, fans, water side economizers, evaporator coils, condensers and compressors. Condenser water for the DX Units is provided via a closed loop 2 cell cooling tower with a total capacity of 3750 GPM (1250 tons @ 3 GPM/ton). The cooling tower and the condenser water risers have sufficient capacity for Tenant’s supplemental air conditioning requirements.
3. Ventilation System
The ventilation system for the Building consists of several Heating and Ventilation Units, which provide heating and ventilation for the cellar and portions of the 1st floor, toilet exhaust system which also serves as the smoke purge system, and fresh air supply for each floor is provided through the wall utilizing through the wall fans at each mechanical equipment room on each floor.
4. Building Management System
BMS system utilizes direct digital control technology for monitoring and control of all building systems to optimize operating efficiencies and energy consumption.
The Building is equipped with both an auxiliary power generator, having a 1375 KVA capacity, and a life safety generator, having a capacity of 375 KVA. The generators utilize low sulfur #2 diesel fuel oil and are fueled by a 275 gallon fuel oil day tank located in the rooftop mechanical room, which is replenished from a 2000 gallon fuel oil storage tank located at the cellar. The generators are activated by transfer switches that are tied into Life Safety Systems and Auxiliary Power Systems respectively.
Fire Protection and Life Safety Systems:
The fire protection system consists of a manual fire pump located in the cellar and a jockey pump located at the main roof, with a combination fire standpipe/sprinkler riser containing floor control assemblies on each floor. A new Class “E” Fire Alarm System with a Central Fire Command Station located at the main lobby is fully addressable and has sufficient capacity for Tenant’s Fire Alarm devices.
The Building is served by two (2) 4000 amp services from Con Edison rated at 277/480V. Eight (8) watts per rsf, demand load, exclusive of base building air conditioning; 460 volt, 3 phase main service.
Restrooms: Restrooms are 100% ADA compliant.
There are 7 passenger elevators which serve all of the floors of the demised premises and 1 combination elevator (service/passenger) which serves all of the floors of the demised premises plus the cellar level. All elevators are manufactured by Otis Elevator, with speeds of 700 FPM. A new Destination Dispatch system will be furnished and installed by Schindler. The combination service elevator is accessible from a loading dock located on Grand Street. The loading dock contains two (2) berths.
Developer has hired a market-leading technology services firm, Eze Castle Integration,
to develop a state of the art base-building telecommunications system and connectivity solution. This includes telecommunications carrier points of entry, base building telecommunications riser systems, base building telecommunications telco closets on every tenant floor and identified rooftop pathways. Telco carrier availability benefits include fully redundant wired and wireless ethernet loops, eBGP peering options for enterprise customers and point-to-point connectivity (last mile) over the protected ring to several major Manhattan colocation facilities.
