Past projects



The Plaza Hotel
In 2005, El Ad Properties closed the Plaza to begin extensive renovations. Tishman Construction undertook the renovations and partnered with Citywide for the construction waste removal. This project was undertaken with great care to comply with landmark regulations as well as bringing this building into the 21st century. This construction project added residential living space and retail stores to this landmark hotel. This historic building was under renovations for around 3 years before reopening its doors in March 2008.

New York Times Building
Located at 620 8th Avenue in Manhattan, it was heralded at the time as one of the most significant new buildings to be designed for the NYC skyline in years. It was the first high rise curtain wall with ceramid sunscreen to be built in the United States. This project was undertaken by Forest City Ratner Corporation beginning in 2000 and Citywide provided the container service and removal to make this historic job possible. This project made use of innovative, cutting edge lighting and shade systems as well as other environmentally sustainable elements which allow employees to work efficiently and successfully while minimizing the impact on the environment.


U.S. Post Office, Downtown Brooklyn
In 1999, the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) purchased this historic building and began extensive renovations which included the addition of new courtrooms, the restoration of existing historic courtrooms, and additional renovations to historic windows and doors. Citywide provided the containers to haul away the construction debris for this project completed in 2005.


The Glen Oaks Campus
One of the largest School Construction Authority (SCA) projects awarded to Dematteis Builders was completed in 2004. This 32+ acre site combined 3 different schools creating a campus that can accomodate 3000 students. Citywide provided the waste removal as well as the documentation for LEED waste reporting of recycled materials for this landmark project.

The Museum of Modern Art
Among one of the most important architectural and construction jobs of the last decade, this project began in 2001 after a substantial amount of demolition and site preparation. Citywide provided the debris removal for this project. Designed at the time by the little known Japanese architect, Yoshio Taniguchi, over 70 different companies, Citywide included, contributed to the remodeling and expansion of this New York City landmark completed in 2004.


JFK International Arrivals Building
Based out of Terminal 4, this project began in 1997 by Granite Halmar Construction Co. This was a large project involving extensive demolition followed by even more extensive renovations. Skidmore, Owings & Merrill undertook the reconstruction of this new terminal adding retail and food outlets and expanding the original hall.


Federal Court House, Downtown Brooklyn
Construction began in 2000 on the new Eastern District courthouse in unison with the renovation of U.S. Post Office. This building, renovated around 1933, underwent massive repairs and extensive renovations to bring it into the 21st century while maintaining historic elements from the buildings construction in 1892.


4 Time Square
When the Durst Organization completed 4 Time Square, Green building practices were almost unheard of; ten years later, they are the standard. Citywide Container Service provided the containers and debris removal service to make this job happen and in assisting with this construction, were on the cusp of the Green building revolution that swept New York City following this project.
