NEW YORK CITY — The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic has selected Fradkin & McAlpin Architects, in collaboration with Czech firm A69 Architekti, to redesign the 35,000-square-foot Czech Mission to the United Nations, located at 1109 Madison Ave. in New York’s Carnegie Hill Historic District. The project will include a gut-renovation of the interior and the creation of new living spaces, offices and meeting space for the staff of the mission. Construction is slated to begin in the fall of 2017. The building was originally built in 1898 as luxury apartments and features a Beaux Arts exterior.
