The Vanbarton Group has unveiled is new office building at 15 Laight Street in Tribeca.
The former home of the Tribeca Film Festival, the property is now a brand-new 100,000 s/f office building spanning eight floors.
The office space features outdoor space on every floor, including a 6,000 s/f roof terrace and a 4,200 s/f terrace at the setback 6th floor. It has a glass curtain wall exterior and views spanning from One World Trade Center to the Empire State Building.
There is a bike room with lockers and shower facilities and the property is designed with the latest safety protocols and disease mitigation measures, including enhanced air filtration upgraded to MERV-15 filters and Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation lighting added to each floor’s HVAC unit.
Newmark’s executive vice chairman Brian Waterman and executive managing directors Andrew M. Peretz and Brent M. Ozarowski are the exclusive leasing agents on the property.
“15 Laight is a brand-new product designed for a post-COVID world which provides a blank slate for firms looking to customize their space with a modern, efficient and wellness-focused build-out that accommodates the new world of work,” said Peretz. “One additional major value proposition of the property is that its location offers users the opportunity to have a major branding impact in front of millions.”
Jeremy Sedrish, a managing director overseeing the project at Vanbarton Group, said, “This past year and a half have further reinforced our long-held belief that there will always be a flight to quality as tenants search for the best product the market will provide, creating on-brand collaborative workspaces which can recruit and nurture top talent.
“We see that desire as a major advantage for a future tenant or tenants, as the property provides a true blank slate allowing a tenant to customize the space to meet their specific needs and company objectives. 15 Laight’s state-of-the-art design offers a safe and comfortable setting in which companies can do their work and meet the challenges of tomorrow.”
Architectural firm Gensler designed the redevelopment and the property is targeting certification by the International WELL Building Institute for interiors and LEED Silver Certification.
“More so than ever, new developments in our city must be designed to adapt to changing business needs both in the short and long term,” said Joseph Lauro, Principal and Managing Director at Gensler. “Our intent with 15 Laight was to create an integrated mixed-use space that welcomes a wide range of industries, from creative and technology to boutique financial services, alongside an incredible opportunity for retail and hospitality at the street level.”
