The Bricken Arcade
The Bricken Arcade, or 230 W38th / 225 W37th Street, is a 217-foot commercial building centrally located in Manhattan's Garment District. Built in 1923 and designed by Gronenberg & Leuchtag, the building had recently underwent a multi-million dollar renovation involving new windows, bathrooms, lobby and all six passenger elevators. Up until their modernization, the Bricken arcade housed some of the few remaining elevators still being manually operated in New York City. Their new elevators are composed of rimex stainless steel nickel satin, wausau-micro floors, custom 3form "varia ecoresin" panels, and an eos lighting system. The new design is a stark difference to what was once there, undoubtedly bringing the Bricken Arcade to the forefront of 21st century interior design.
