Like many private clubs, SOKOL NEW YORK was interested in using the development potential of their location.  As part of the transaction by the developer, SOKOL was to retain a separate entrance distinct from the residential condominium tower.  In addition, an entire club facility along with exhibition gallery, private cocktail lounge, gymnasium, banquet room and kitchen, men's and women's locker rooms, separate elevators and a private court and garden presented quite an architectural challenge.
