Hair Club is celebrating the opening of its 100th location with a new salon in New York.
A self-described leader in the hair restoration industry, Hair Club will be opening a 16,400-square-foot center at 551 Madison Avenue. The center will span the fifth and sixth floor of the building and prides itself on an innovative and environmentally-sustainable design, according to officials involved with the deal.
“The design and construction of Hair Club’s new center incorporates a number of green and environmentally-sustainable elements, including LED lighting technology, Energy Star-rated HVAC systems and equipment, recycled and reclaimed building materials, as well as low-VOC paint,” said Lawrence Buck, a Hair Club construction project manager, in a prepared statement.
The green-friendly office will compliment the LEED certification of the 551 Madison Avenue. The building, originally built as a hotel in 1992, has undergone several renovations over the years, including an effort to escalate sustainability in 2008, which led to its certification.
The salon center will include an employee lounge, cafe area that will double as a meeting space for staff, as well as 25 styling and treatment rooms. The office will assist in serving the salon’s New York area base of more than 1,500 clients.
The salon, which started as a single space in New York, has provided their proprietary surgical hair restoration procedure to more than 500,000 clients over the years.
The brokers for both the tenant and the landlord were not disclosed.
