The Design Team

Riverside Galleria is designed by Studio V, an award winning architecture and planning firm based in New York City. Studio V’s founder and lead architect is Jay Valgora who has been celebrated for his adaptive reuse design of important New York City sites such as Macy’s Herald Square. Valgora’s work focuses on the transformation of New York City’s waterfront. Valgora is leading a team to design the Empire Stores on the Brooklyn waterfront, which will transform seven abandoned warehouses into a mixed-use tech campus with deployable barrier walls in the event of a super storm.
