MADGI and MDA Lead Efforts to Reposition Wall St. Properties
The two affiliated firms have completed work for owners and managers of 30 Broad Street, 101 Greenwich Street, 111-115 Broadway, 100 William Street, 100 Wall Street and 77 Water Street.
An example of the expertise require to reposition large, older properties is redevelopment of 30 Broad Street. MDA and MADGI assisted the property owner Tribeca Associates in upgrading the 47-story office tower. “Tribeca was interested in repositioning the 470,000 SF, 87 year-old tower to attract new tenants. Its executives recognized our experience in repositioning commercial buildings and designing pre-built and custom offices for other landlords in the city,” said MDA and MADGI principal and landlord services studio leader Daniel Montroy, AIA.
The upgrade began with the lobby renovation. MDA, along with consultant CREME, incorporated hotel-like amenities into the lobby and other shared spaces. MDA then redesigned several spaces on higher floors into pre-built offices, revamped the exterior entranceway, and added an entrance canopy that features a green roof.
In another example, MDA recently assisted Cove Property Group in its $75 million redevelopment of 101 Greenwich Street, a 26-story, 481,000 SF Beaux Arts office building. MDA helped the owners reposition the property through architectural and infrastructure upgrades. The 111 year-old building was enhanced to meet a high LEED rating.
MDA has completed several interior projects at the 21-story 100 William Street tower for owner/manager John Hancock Real Estate. “As part of a comprehensive property upgrade, our firm developed the design standards for the entire property and designed John Hancock’s offices, custom spaces for new tenants, and several pre-built offices,” said Montroy.
Similarly, the firm designed a series of pre-built offices and built-to-suit tenant spaces at 111-115 Broadway for the owner, Capital Properties. The landmark twin towers’ interiors have been updated with exposed brick and historic details that complement modern open offices for downtown tenants.
At the 29-story 100 Wall Street tower, MDA also designed multiple pre-built and built-to-suit tenant offices for the landlord Barings, broker JLL, and managing agent Cushman & Wakefield.
