Working closely with Tishman Speyer Properties and Trinity Church Real Estate, LHPA developed preliminary design concepts for a high-tech office building in the Hudson Square area of New York City. This project represented a commitment and effort to successfully establish “Hudson Square” as a new commercial center and office area.
Originally conceived as a “communication-information processing prototype building,” Lee Harris Pomeroy Architects designed the 900,000 square-foot building with large bays, typically 29 feet by 34 feet, and large floors ranging from 38,000 to 62,000 square feet to accommodate computer and word processing equipment layouts. Also the 12’ 6” floor-to-floor height accommodates all forms of power and cable distribution.
This distribution is capable of connecting to central satellite access points for national and international voice, data, and teleconferencing capabilities.
As the project developed it became the headquarters for Saatchi and Saatchi Advertising Company and the building design was completed in collaboration with Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.
