125 West 25th Street
Reflecting the Chelsea neighborhood’s evolution into “Silicon Alley,” we worked with Normandy Real Estate Partners to transform an industrial building at 125 West 25th Street into a site for tenants with forward-thinking business. The façade for the first three floors was replaced with a glass curtain wall, lit from the inside, making the ground floor perfect for retail. The remaining floors offer new office space with loft ceilings and modern layouts intended to attract technology and media tenants. And we’ve added a rooftop penthouse floor with two full-width terraces for expansive views of the city. The building attracted fitness technology company Peloton, whom we’ve been working with on a 60,000-sf relocation to the top six floors. The building’s lobby, common areas, and infrastructure have also been upgraded to meet 21st-century demands, and the entire project is targeted to achieve LEED BD+C Gold certification.
