After signing an 82,000-square-foot deal for three floors—not to mention an option for a fourth—at 250 Park Avenue in May of last year, wine and spirits company Pernod Ricard’s new flagship space consolidated Pernod Ricard USA and Pernod Ricard Americas, which owns brands like Absolut Vodka and Jameson Irish Whiskey.
With the deal, the company now occupies floors 16 through 18, with a focus on the 17th floor, where an open layout and exposed, distillery-like environment commingle with a lounge and conference rooms.
“We’re loving this space—it came out so great,” said Scott Spector, principal of the Spector Group, which designed the space. “It’s one of the coolest spaces we’ve ever worked in on Park Avenue. Some will likely argue that the finished product is even cooler.”
After the jump, Mr. Spector reviews the furniture plans with The Commercial Observer and explains what, exactly, drew Pernod Ricard to 250 Park Avenue.
