General contractor UA Builders Group and architect Habjan Betancourt, LLC completed Phases 1 and 2 of the interior build-out of the New York offices of Indeed.com, the online employment search engine known as the world’s #1 job site.
Upon completion of Phase 3, the new 125,000 s/f office will allow the firm to nearly triple its New York City operations, from 250 employees in its former 55,00 s/f location to more than 700 staffers when the entire project is completed.
The new office is located at 1120 Sixth Avenue in Manhattan.
“The 1120 Sixth Avenue building offers a truly unique experience for our employees and we wanted to ensure that the interiors match the prominence and quality of this prime location,” said Derek Stewart, head of real estate at Indeed.
“The dramatic interior design and excellent, modern workplace layout concept, developed by Habjan Betancourt and built by UA Builders, pay homage to traditional industries – and employers – that call New York home. We have succeeded in our goal of creating an exciting, high-energy, and comfortable work environment that will attract top talent.”
“An exemplary collaboration between the client, designers, and the construction team allowed us to complete the first two phases of the project in only 12 months, from the beginning of design to move-in,” said Albert Gjonbalaj, CEO of UA Builders.
The building, which is between 43rd and 44th Streets, is owned and managed by Edison Properties. JLL represented Indeed in the leasing deal executed in the second half of 2016, while Cushman & Wakefield represented Edison Properties.
The project team also included the landscape architect Gunn Landscape Architecture, which designed the outdoor terrace.
