Racanelli Construction Company, Inc., a leading third-generation construction management, general contractor and design/build resource for commercial, industrial, retail, medical, pre-engineered and multi-family housing projects, announced that it has completed the Raymour & Flanigan Furniture store in Manhattan at 1985 Broadway and 66th Street. This is the seventh major project Racanelli has completed for the nation’s 7th largest U.S. furniture retailer in the past two years. The other Raymour & Flanigan stores are located in the towns of Garden City and Patchogue, and The Boroughs of Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx.  

Racanelli Construction Company served as the General Contractor on the project, which was led by Vice President Martin Racanelli, Jr., Project Manager Mike Marshall, and Project and Field Superintendent John Costanzo.  The project required the demolition of the existing building formerly housing a Circuit City store and the construction of a 40,000 square foot existing building encompassing an open atrium with extensive custom woodwork throughout. The project, which was completed on a 90-day fast track, was valued at over $2 million. 

Just prior to the Manhattan store, Racanelli had completed a Bronx store located in the revitalization zone around the new Yankee Stadium at 610 Exterior Street in the Bronx Terminal Market area. Racanelli also served as General Contractor on this project which included demolition, carpentry, plumbing, electric, HVAC, ceramic tile and carpet installation, painting, millwork, signage and fireproofing. The interior fit out encompassed a new employee lounge and public/employee restrooms. This project was valued at $1.7 million dollars.
