From the October issue: Scott Spector’s 34th Street office overlooks the bustling intersection at Madison Avenue. And that seems appropriate, because the 45-person architecture firm he leads is bustling now, too. The firm — which was founded by his father and bears his name — is the executive architect on the $250 million Pelli Clarke Pelli redesign of the World Financial Center’s retail pavilion. The glass structure will include 177,000 square feet of retail, and will link to the World Trade Center transit hub. Meanwhile, the firm also just completed an interior build-out for high-end French liqueur purveyor Pernod Ricard at 250 Park Avenue, and in 2010, it wrapped up a massive archival storage space for Christie’s, the auction house. Among the 40 to 60 projects that Spector says his firm currently has underway is a new Volkswagen/Audi dealership on 11th Avenue. This month, Spector gave The Real Deal a tour of his own digs.
