Making Offices Feel Like Home
Linear Lighting from Amerlux Creates Bright, Airy Space for NYC Financial Firm
With cinematic views of Central Park and Manhattan, the iconic General Motors Building is one of the few structures in Manhattan to occupy an entire city block. A private hedge fund moved into the building and, after several years, needed to revamp its offices.
Filling an entire floor, the financial company needed a space that would foster greater collaboration among its employees and symbolize its connection to the city. Abandoning the traditional private office model, the company hired Chicago architectural firm Valero Dewalt Train Associates to deliver a unified, modern and open office space. The new floor plan is complete with a trading floor, a board room, reception areas, lounge spaces and breakrooms, a fitness center, meeting rooms and large open office areas.
