DataGryd’s efforts are transforming a historic Manhattan building into a future-proof, world-class, high-tech data center.

By Chris Petersen

There may be no better metaphor for the progress communication technology has made over the last century than what is going on at 60 Hudson Street in Manhattan. The former headquarters of Western Union is undergoing a massive $100 million transformation into a modern data network hub courtesy of DataGryd Data Centers. The leader in data center development and operations in Manhattan, DataGryd is transforming the Art Deco building into the most sophisticated and flexible data center in Manhattan, and founder and CEO Peter Feldman says the end-result should be a major step forward for the company and telecommunications on the island as a whole.

DataGryd was founded in 2011, when it leased four floors at 60 Hudson Street and began upgrading those floors to accommodate the infrastructure needed to host data centers for customers. Today, the company occupies space on over nine floors of the building, and the company’s latest upgrade of the building is its most ambitious to date.

Quest Builders GroupQuest Builders Group emphasizes it is just the right size to provide high-quality interior contracting services to clients. 

By Chris Petersen

In a market filled with construction firms of all sizes, interior contractor Quest Builders Group Inc. sits somewhere in the middle in terms of size. That doesn’t bother owners Patrick Fitzpatrick and Eric Derector, however. They see the company’s size as an advantage that allows it to perform high-quality work and build long-term, trusting relationships with its clients. As the company continues to lead the market in New York City, Quest Builders Group remains committed to ensuring that the qualities that have made it a leader don’t get lost in its forward momentum.

Founded in 2001 during the peak of the residential real estate boom, Quest Builders Group today serves a broader cross-section of the New York interior construction market. Fitzpatrick says the company has followed the ebb and flow of various sectors to take on interior construction projects for clients in the commercial, retail and hospitality industries. “We kind of go with the trends in the industry and follow those,” he says. “[These are] all cycles that we’ve experienced during the course of our 15 years.”

The Super Bowl is one of the largest annual events in the world. The 2016 NFL championship drew an average of 111.9 million viewers from home and another 71,088 in the stands.

When the world’s eyes are upon you, nothing can go wrong. Pulling off such a large event requires detailed coordination from state and NFL officials down to the ball boys and technical contractors. For this year’s Super Bowl Sunday, JMA Wireless’ job was to ensure everyone sitting in Levi’s Stadium could soak in the jarring hits and finesse passes on the field without a second thought about cell phone signal and speeds when they sent a halftime selfie to their friends.


Engineered ServicesEngineered Devices Corporation says it serves high-rise construction in New York City better than its competitors. 

By Chris Petersen

It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to become a leader in the New York metropolitan market, and for more than 35 years Engineered Devices Corporation (EDC) has brought exactly that to one of the world’s most competitive construction markets. Despite the intense competition, however, EDC nevertheless has grown into one of the market’s leading suppliers and producers of shoring and building products for the reinforced concrete high-rise contractor population in the greater New York City market. Founder and co-owner Antonio Limbardo credits the company’s long history of success to its depth of services, its proprietary products and highly responsive service.

Limbardo started EDC in 1980 as the successor to an earlier well-established firm in New York City. As of today, EDC has three main divisions: shoring and forming products, rebar & custom fabrication services and wholesale distribution of products from a variety of leading manufacturers. Although the company’s competitors in the New York City market typically are much larger than EDC, Limbardo says EDC is more than a match for them.
