Forbes - 60 5th Avenue

Separate 60 5th Ave from 11 W. 12th Street. The buildings were originally distinct but neighboring, conjoined at some point and the current desire is to return them to separate structures. Two large plate girders spanned the structure and had to be supported and cut. The new column had to be preloaded to ensure the plate girders didn’t change position and cause damage through the rest of the buildings.
