O&S Associates performed the architectural and structural design for this new garage that serves a Pathmark store and Manhattan College. Pathmark ancillary facilities occupy the grade level. The store consists of a grade level for retail and a mezzanine level for mechanical equipment and service needs.

Six levels of parking are provided above the store. The first level above the store is exclusive for Pathmark shoppers. The second level of parking is for both Pathmark and Manhattan College users. This level connects directly to Manhattan College Parkway and provides ingress and egress locations for the garage. Levels 3 thru 6 provide parking for Manhattan College users.

Pedestrian access is provided to Manhattan College through a bridge that connects the garage to the North side of Hayden Hall and crosses over Manhattan College Parkway. The pedestrian bridge is 7 ft. wide by 154 ft. long and is three structural segments. A small elevator/stair tower is located at the Manhattan College Parkway entrance to the garage and connects the pedestrian bridges to the garage. There are four elevators in the garage for vertical circulation.

Underpinning of existing stone walls was required for foundation design. Steel piles were utilized for foundations and structural slab on grade. O&S Associates designed this project as a precast concrete structure with an alternative steel design for the developer.
