In its search for new office space, the Institute for New Economic Thinking was looking for a “next generation” environment with open ceilings and a light, airy environment that fostered collaborative thinking. An economic think tank founded by fun manager George Soros, Research in Motion’s Jim Balsillie and William Janeway of Warburg Pincus, INET has office locations worldwide. It found what it was looking for in a 7,100-square-foot space on the fifth floor of Rose rose-owned 300 Park Avenue, recently renamed the Creative Arts Building. After the jump, Mikael Nahmias, senior managing director at Cushman & Wakefield, reviewed the furniture plan with The Commercial Observer and discussed why, exactly, INET chose 300 Park Avenue South for its headquarters.
