Times Square Church

New York, NY

The French Baroque style Times Square Church previously known as the Mark Hellinger Theater (and originally built in 1929 as the Hollywood Theater by architect Thomas Lamb) is a unique example of an adaptive reuse space that was restored from a Broadway theater and transformed into a vibrant church. Times Square Church is a non-denominational church located at 237 West 51st Street in the Theater District of Manhattan, New York City. Many people representing over one hundred nationalities gather to worship together every week.

EverGreene devised a solution to suspend a giant platform from the ceiling which protected patrons from the work above, using the original bolt ties that were still in place from when the building was constructed. This allowed our craftsmen to get close enough to restore the brilliant ceiling while keeping the building fully operational.
