The development of the neighborhoods around Madison Square Park has created a variety of new commercial development opportunities from 23rd Street to 34 Street, one of which is the development of a new furniture district along Madison Avenue and included office rents due to the success of the Flatiron District. WQB Architecture PLLC is assisting A Ruth & Sons, owner of 102 Madison Avenue (for over 40 years) in redeveloping the property. The work consists of a new retail storefront, new office entrance and a new landscaped tenant roof deck.
