To better understand the architecture firms behind some of the city’s biggest projects, The Real Deal analyzed new building (NB) and alteration (A1 and A2) permits filed between 2008 and 2018. The result: a ranking of the architects with the biggest footprints throughout the five boroughs.
SLCE Architects topped the list with 51.5 million square feet of development throughout the city. It was trailed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill with 35 million square feet, Perkins Eastman with 22.2 million square feet and Hill West Architects with 20.9 million square feet. TPG Architecture rounded out the top five with 20.2 million square feet.
