Project outcome

Coined Nextplace, the office showcases a flexible atmosphere embodying health, wellness and nature. The lobby is punctuated with a 17 LED digital wall highlighting Lendlease projects and people, a lush 30 living wall, and a 3D map table of Manhattan with laser light enhancements showcasing major projects. The office achieved LEED Platinum and is targeting WELL certification.

The social hub offers employees a place to socialize at the pool table, or work in a dining environment. Creative artwork is provided by local graffiti artists as well as a custom wood dowel mosaic along the Main Street walkway, depicting the High Line. The open ceiling plan and floor to ceiling windows provide sunlit views of Park Avenue and Grand Central Station. DIRTT prefabricated wall panels with recycled denim insulation are not only sustainable, but also create pavilions of focus rooms with improved acoustics and flexibility to reconfigure the office without generating waste.

An average of eight plants per person create an environment of color, texture, privacy and visual enhancement. In addition to integrated planters, Lendleases own custom-designed work tables also offer motorized sit-to-stand tabletops. The project design was inspired by Lendleases signature workplace concept of team-based working.

Our mission is to create the best places, and our Americas headquarters exemplifies our ambition for our people to leave work healthier than when they arrived.
