Highland Associates is Executive Architect for Macy’s Herald Square Renovation Project


New York, NY   - Highland Associates, acting as Executive Architect, is currently providing Architectural and Engineering design services to Macy’s, Inc. for their unprecedented, 4-year renovation.  The effort will reinvent and elevate the shopping experience at Macy’s flagship store at Herald Square in New York City, the world’s largest department store. Work began in early spring 2012 on the $400 million project and will continue in phases through the fall of 2015. Every department and the 1st floor and 34th Street / Broadway Mezzanine level Broadway building exterior will be improved over the life of the project. The store will remain open and operating during construction, with the location of some departments shifting temporarily.

As Executive Architect, Highland Associates is working with Macy’s, Inc.’s internal planning, design and construction teams on the Macy’s Herald Square renovation program along with Master planning support from New York based, STUDIO V Architecture, Kevin Kennon Architects, and Charles Sparks + Company.  In addition to its Executive Architect role, Highland is providing full mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection engineering design services.

News of the monumental renovation is starting to spread.  The New York Times recently featured a story titled, “Macy’s Splurges on a Makeover on 34th Street,” detailing the top to bottom transformation.  “Highland is proud to be part of the renovation of one of the nation’s most iconic retailers,” stated Thomas Hauck, AIA, Highland Associates Principal.  “Macy’s is synonymous with quality, customer service and style.  We are honored to have been chosen as Executive Architect to execute the design intended to fulfill Macy’s goal of creating the world’s most exciting, interesting and technologically-advanced department store,” says Hauck.
