This recent series of leasing successes follows the completion of the first phase of Rudin’s comprehensive capital improvement program at 80 Pine Street, which included the renovation of the building’s ground floor entrances and lobby. Working with Fogarty Finger Architecture, Rudin has completely reimagined the building’s ground floor spaces, which now feature white terrazzo flooring, white oak paneled walls, energy efficient LED lighting and new elevator cabs.

This amenity space will feature a café, lounge, conference facility and a 4,600-square-foot outdoor terrace.
