As a Director at KPF, Christopher Keeny has more than 35 years of experience in architectural design and project management, and has been responsible for managing several complex projects throughout the United States.
A highly experienced technical coordinator and project manager, Chris is adept at coordinating design teams for residential developments. He played an essential role in the design of the 27 Wooster Street project in New York, a 4,800-square-foot luxury condominium building. His role included managing the design of the residential lobby, two commercial units, a 10-car parking garage, and 15 residential units, including a two-story duplex penthouse with a private swimming pool.
Also in New York, Chris was deeply involved with managing the design team for 111 Murray Street, a luxury residential project that sets a new standard for residential buildings. The project notably incorporated several innovative BIM methodologies that resulted in a particularly efficient process for coordinating consultant teams.
In California, Chris led the design team for Park Fifth, a luxury residential project in Los Angeles that received the AIA NY Chapter Award of Merit in 2007. More recently, he has served as Project Manager for Pacific Gate, a 515,000-square-foot luxury residential development San Diego, which rises up 41 stories right on the waterfront, creating a new landmark for the city’s downtown core.
Chris’s management skills have also been essential to the success of Hudson Yards in New York City, the largest private real estate development in the country. The 13-million-square-foot, mixed-use development required extensive coordination and collaboration between a variety of consultant and engineering teams.
