Perelman Performing Arts Center at the World Trade Center
New York, NY

DBI was the development and project manager for the ground-up construction of The Perelman Center at the World Trade Center. As one of the final buildings in the redevelopment of the World Trade Center site, the Perelman Center will activate the site throughout the day and into the evening with innovative programming. The design of the Perelman Center includes three flexible venues that can combine to create various larger-format spaces for productions ranging from theater to dance to music to contemporary chamber opera.

DBI, in partnership with the Perelman Center leadership, managed the development of the complex Public-Private Partnership, including the team selection, procurement processes, project budget, project schedule, design and below-grade construction. DBI then worked with the Perelman Center to select and on-board the Construction Manager for the project and build-out the organization’s own capital project team to oversee and facilitate construction of the building. The 130,000-SF Perelman Center is expected to open in 2021.
