Nikon At Jones Beach Theater Restoration
Wantagh, NY

This historic 15,000-set Art Deco-styled venue was critically damaged by the tidal surge and strong winds of Superstorm Sandy in October 2012.  EwingCole led the $20M restoration which included the complete replacement of the wooden turntable stage, more than 3,000 seats, major portions of the engineering systems, and the adjacent boardwalk.  The project was completed in just 5 months so the 2013 event season could open on time.

“The Singapore Racetrack at Kranji is just fantastic and the facilities are amazing, really state-of-the-art. I think I can honestly say that Kranji is in a class of its own.”

“The renovation to Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall was a one-of-a-kind project that transformed an historic Building into a state-of-the-art special events arena. I am proud of the completed project and I am thrilled to see the facility receiving the recognition it deserves on the state level.  The prestigious awards bestowed upon the Hall reinforce what we here in South Jersey have known for some time, that Boardwalk Hall is a state-wide historical treasure.”
