From the January issue:
Sciame founded his eponymous construction company in 1975 and to date has completed more than 1,000 projects in NYC. The firm, which currently has more than $1.5 billion worth of projects underway, has handled a slew of high-profile developments, including the exterior restoration of the Guggenheim Museum, part of the High Line and Edward Minskoff’s 400,000-square-foot angular, glass office tower at 51 Astor Place. Current projects include the Culture Shed, a visual and performing arts center that will be located on city-owned land within the Hudson Yards area. In 2014, the firm ventured out of NYC and launched Palm Beach-based Sciame Homes, which builds spec houses. [more]
