With an eye toward modernizing the office aesthetic at 555 Fifth Avenue, ATCO Properties & Management enlisted its construction division, Essential Design + Build, to implement a prebuilt office concept on the building’s ninth floor.
The 6,031-square-foot space was designed with flexibility in mind and will offer potential tenants a
vision of what space at the Midtown East office building can look like. The building’s tenant roster already includes a number of high-profile names, including Barnes & Noble, Harris Corporation, CW Financial Services and more, so new tenants enticed by the prebuilt space at the LEED Silver building will no doubt be in good company.
“We wanted to pique people’s interest and get them talking,” Rich Hiler, president of Essential Design + Build, said of the project. Mr. Hiler spoke with The Commercial Observer last week about the concept and
the unique touches he and his team added to the space.
