Two Trees takes office roofs to next level

Two Trees Management has unveiled three rooftop amenity spaces at its anchor office buildings in DUMBO — 45 Main Street, 55 Washington Street, and 20 Jay Street.

Designed by James Corner Field Operations, the team behind Manhattan’s High Line, the new rooftops feature waterfront views of the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges and the Manhattan skyline.

Ranging from 11,000 to 8,500 s/f, the rooftops include outdoor conference rooms, picnic and dining areas, spaces for screenings, outdoor yoga, and tons of planting and flexible seating throughout for working, collaborating, and relaxing.
“Two Trees is devoted to providing attractive amenities for the 400 companies that occupy our Dumbo office buildings including rooftops that allow for intermingling socially and professionally while enjoying some of the city’s most inspiring views,” said Jed Walentas, principal of Two Trees Management.

“Our collaboration with James Corner Field Operations at Domino Park and elsewhere gave us confidence and inspiration to bring first-class outdoor common space to our core office properties.”

Lisa Switkin of James Corner Field Operations, commented, “Our design goal was to provide unique, lively gathering areas within lush settings in the center of a thriving urban environment while optimizing expansive views of the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges and the Manhattan skyline.”

The 45 Main Street Rooftop offers 9,520 s/f comprised of a series of seven alcoves that line the edge of the roof, including various sized custom wood banquettes notched between the structural columns surrounded by planting.
A raised wooden deck punctuated with trees functions as a large multi-purpose room, lined with a custom wood-slotted trellis and integrated bench oriented towards spectacular views of the Manhattan Bridge.

20 Jay Street Rooftop has a V-shaped raised wooden deck, a custom-designed screen framing the deck and providing a surface for outdoor movies and projections. The 55 Washington Rooftop is organized by a raised wooden promenade lined with shade trees and furnished with custom benches. Three rooms step off the promenade, including a lounge, an outdoor conference room and a picnic and dining area.
