developers the georgetown company and uruguayan architect rafael viñoly have announced plans for new office space at 787 11th avenue in new york. the $100 million USD redevelopment will add a two-storey penthouse and transform the historic building’s upper levels into modern offices with oversized floor plans, while the existing property, completed by industrial architect albert kahn in 1929, will be completely renovated.

located on the west side of manhattan, in close proximity to BIG’s VIA57, the building is directly across the street from dewitt clinton park and just one block away from the hudson river park and west side highway. designed to meet the growing demand for upscale office space in the clinton area, the scheme will add 86,000 square feet to the building, bringing total square footage to over 500,000 square feet.

the property will feature large, open floorplates measuring over an acre in size; 24-foot (7 m) high ceilings in certain areas; oversized windows to let in natural light; executive parking in the basement; a 12,000 square foot roof deck for the exclusive use of office tenants; and a partnership with the adjacent mercedes club — a health facility across the street. tenants will also benefit from a number of convenient transportation options, including shuttle service to transit hubs and a planned citibike station.

‘georgetown has a reputation for developing the very best properties so it’s an honor to join with them on this project,’ said viñoly, whose recent projects in new york include 432 park avenue. ‘the opportunity to combine the building’s historic architecture with a sleek and modern design is one I could not pass up.’


‘we’re excited to work with our partners and rafael to create a truly unique property in the clinton neighborhood,’ added adam flatto, CEO of the georgetown company. ‘with the far west side quickly emerging as the center of new activity in manhattan, we see demand exploding for modern, creative office space.’


late last year, BNF automotive group and nissan north america signed long term leases for 265,000 square feet on the lower floors of the building for flagship dealerships, including state of the art showrooms and service facilities for jaguar, land rover infiniti and nissan.
