Retail fashion brand J.Crew’s new headquarters in Brookfield Place spans 6 floors and houses over 1000 employees. Located in NYC’s Financial District, the space overlooks the Hudson River and has 5 photo studios, mock stores, wholesale showrooms, management and accounting offices, conference spaces, employee lounges, and huddle rooms. J.Crew was drawn to this space because of the existing furniture left by the previous tenant. Empire Office, in collaboration with VM Architecture and Design (VMAD) took inventory of the existing product, reconfigured, and were able to re-use items in the new build-out, providing significant cost savings to J.Crew. Amongst these items were Steelcase workstations and private offices that were modified to fit the desired floor plan.
New furniture was specified and purchased from manufacturers such as Keilhauer, Andreu World, Wendelbo, and Davis – all in warm finishes to complement the J.Crew brand. The space now reflects the culture of J.Crew and is a more design-focused, and relaxing environment.
