RCN Telecom Services needed to relocate their New York Market office for 80 sales staff. After an extensive search, assisted by Gertler and Wente, a building in Long Island City was chosen as being well located to serve Manhattan. The tenant fit-out is for 14,000 square feet and includes all new furniture and HVAC system. The design takes maximum advantage of dramatic views to midtown Manhattan and maintains the loft feel with open ceilings, clear window areas and the careful integration of existing sculptural columns into the design. A block of offices has been located in the center of the floor in order to break up the space into two open areas for separate departments and create a shared meeting room in the center of the plan.
This project was awarded LEED-CI GOLD.
