The Rudin Family has tapped Fogarty Finger Architecture for a major redesign and renovation of the lobby at 80 Pine Street in Lower Manhattan.
The modernized ground floor lobby and entryways at the 1.2 million square foot office tower will provide a building within a building opportunity for a major tenant.
The ground floor exterior will feature new storefronts with decorative glass curtain walls and state of the art LED lighting.
Fogarty Finger’s design will brighten the space with fresh white terrazzo flooring with warm, white oak paneled walls cladding and contemporary plaster-finished ceilings throughout.
The space also features bespoke architectural metal and glasswork, including exterior fritted glass and interior bronze-mirrored fritted glass and backlit feature walls.
The scope of the work will also include a custom white oak and marble clad concierge desk, all new energy efficient LED lighting throughout and new elevator cabs. I
A strong focus was also placed on the health & wellness of tenants, including upgraded security elements with touch-free access points and the addition of advanced air filtration technology. A significant part of the lobby on the Pearl Street side of the building will be open by the end of the year.
“We are proud of our stewardship of 80 Pine Street, which we built in 1960 and have owned and managed ever since,” said Samantha Rudin, Senior Vice President of Rudin Management Company, the operating arm of Rudin Family holdings.
“As a member representing the fourth generation of the family business, we are excited to build upon our legacy as well as to revitalize, modernize and reinvest in this important Downtown office tower.”
“Moving away from the original travertine lobby, the new design draws on a warmer version of the mid-century International Style, featuring materials such as finished wood walls and a lighter terrazzo floor,” said Robert Finger, Founding Partner of Fogarty Finger Architecture. “The finished product will be an inspired update with timeless appeal, designed to attract and retain a diverse group of tenants.”
The renovation project is being done in concert with Rudin’s recently launched leasing and marketing campaign. Rudin has retained a team from JLL, led by Frank Doyle, Alexander Chudnoff, Peter Riguardi, John Wheeler, Eliza Akers and Kyle Young, to assist in its effort to identify, market and lease the building to prospective tenants.
