MBI Group, a New York City-based construction firm specializing in commercial and retail interior fit-outs, completed the buildout of Citizen Watch’s Manhattan headquarters, located on the 10th floor of 1120 Avenue of the Americas.
The 25,000 s/f space was designed by TPG Architecture. Alex Getelman, Executive Managing Director of MBI Group, commented, “The design aesthetic of the brand’s headquarters reflects the sleek and innovative approach that the watchmaker is known for. We were proud to complete this project on a tight schedule to meet Citizen’s required occupancy date. ”
The scope of the project included a new elevator lobby and reception area featuring curved ceilings and specialty stone; conference rooms and private offices with extensive glass and custom millwork; open workstations; wellness room; and pantries.
A special requirement for Citizen Watch was a merchandise product room and retail set-up showroom, which included LED lighting set in a matching pattern recessed within the floor along with custom, high-gloss ceiling panels. The showroom also provides access to one of the two large terraces.
