A prominent private investment group acquired several mid-town Manhattan office buildings with the intention of repositioning these through a complete replacement of the facades providing greater visibility and energy management lending better office interiors and prestige. Location selection for premium office tenants is often dependent on the amenities that are available to the day-time office workers.
This becomes increasingly important to recruiting and retaining skilled information professionals.
A&Co. was asked by the architectural team to assist with the feasibility, programming and as a design advisor for the retail, restaurants and recreation portions of the building's lower levels. At present the location of this concept is undisclosed.
