Project Type: Cinemas/4DX Vibration
Essex Crossing; Regal Cinemas
New York, NY
This 24-story multi-use building will have a combination of rental condos, an urban farm, and a 14-screen, 1,250-seat Regal movie theater. Sound transmission between the adjacent spaces in this building is of particular concern due to the tendency for cinemas to generate elevated levels of noise and vibration. There will be theaters on multiple levels of this building with the potential to transmit sound and vibration to residences directly above and between theaters as well. Our services on this project include providing very low vibration transmission criteria and design recommendations from all theaters into the base building structures.
