Two prominent New York-based architecture and design firms, Perkins Eastman and Ehrenkrantz Eckstut & Kuhn Architects, announced a merger today, with the new firm ranking as the largest in New York. With 600 employees, it will surpass Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, which topped Crain’s list last year of architecture firms with the largest number of New York-area architects. The two companies will consolidate their New York, Washington, D.C. and China practices, but each will maintain its own name. “Over the years, we have been entertained by many larger firms, but now we found the right firm and culture,” said Stanton Eckstut, Ehrenkrantz Eckstut & Kuhn’s chairman. “We needed more capacity and expertise in certain building types for large-scale projects to be more effective.” Perkins Eastman’s New York projects include residential buildings such as 15 Union Square West, 835 Sixth Avenue and the Beatrice Residences. Ehrenkrantz Eckstut & Kuhn designed Battery Park City and the Rego Park Center in Queens and is also working on the Moynihan Station redevelopment. [Crain’s]
