Our urban density interim housing prototype fabricated for NYC OEM and FEMA with partners Garrison-Architects and AMSS was recently opened to the public for the Open House NY weekend (OHNY).  The fine folks at CurbedNY took a very detailed tour of the project and had many nice things to say.  Well worth your time to take the photo tour and read the article if you haven’t had a change to see it yourself.  Photos courtesy of CurbedNY and Evan Bindelglass.  Read more here.

As one of a few Approved Fabricators certified by New York City to deliver site-specific modular construction into the five boroughs, we at Mark Line keep a close eye on the projects that our peers have underway.  In the past year, a number of very impressive modular buildings have been erected in the Big Apple.  One of the most daring, is the B2 Tower at Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, just a few blocks from where Mark Line’s urban housing prototype is in use by the City.  Despite the commercial dispute between the developer and the construction manager, this project is still quite innovative and we hope to see our friends at FCS Modular back into fabrication very soon.  Popular Mechanics leads off their October issue with a great in-depth feature that is worth reading here.
