Kramer Levin Again Takes Lead Role in Architecture Week

October 1, 2009

Kramer Levin is pleased to announce that, once again, it will serve as the lead sponsor of Architecture Week, a celebration of the best in architecture and design hosted annually by the New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects. Architecture Week events begin on Monday, October 5th, and runs through Sunday, October 11th.

Kramer Levin’s continued support of Architecture Week stems from the firm’s long involvement with the land use approvals for some of the most ground-breaking architecture in the city. In the past few years, the firm’s Land Use group handled zoning approvals for the new Whitney Museum on Gansevoort Street, 53 West 53rd Street, Hearst Tower, 610 Lexington, One York Street, Turtle Bay South, Weil Greenburg Center, The Platinum Apartments, 184 Kent Avenue, the Dream Downtown Hotel, Riverside Center and the Lincoln Center 65th St. Redevelopment project, among others.

“We are delighted to support Architecture Week, which further advances New York City as a locus for the best and most advanced architectural design,” said Michael T. Sillerman, co-chair of Kramer Levin’s Land Use department.

This year’s Architecture Week will feature talks at the Center for Architecture presented by the Heritage Ball honorees Diller Scofidio + Renfro; Robert Silman, PE, Hon. AIA; Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe; and the Make It Right Foundation. The week features numerous exhibition openings and programs culminating in the 2009 Heritage Ball at Chelsea Piers, where the honorees will be presented with their awards. Laurie Beckelman, Hon.AIA, of Beckelman+Capalino will host as dinner chair.
