The major renovation of lobby and entry areas within 55 Broad Street is now complete and New York YIMBY has exclusive new images from Rudin Management Company. The Financial District office building now features treatments such as marble walls, textured terrazzo flooring, and reflective ceilings to help magnify light within the entry space. Updated security features include electronic turnstiles, reception seating, and increased street-level visibility both from outside and within the building.
Rudin Management Company commissioned Fogarty Finger Architecture to design and oversee all aspects of the renovation.
“The new lobby design will modernize 55 Broad Street for decades to come,” said Samantha Rudin, senior vice president at Rudin. “In working with Fogarty Finger, we created a lobby that merges the coolness of marble and a contemporary design with classic, warm details. Tenants and visitors alike will be welcomed into a space that is both new and timeless.”
The 30-story office tower was originally developed by the Rudin Family in the early 1960s and designed by Emery Roth & Sons as the headquarters for Goldman Sachs. In the early 1990s, the Rudins began to renovate and rewire the framework into a more technologically advanced structure. In 1995, 55 Broad Street became the first fully wired office building in New York City, offering tenants satellite accessibility, single and multi-mode fiber optics, high speed Category-5 Ethernet cabling, as well as a wide range of videoconferencing and internet capabilities. The property is currently designated Wired Certified Platinum for best-in-class connectivity.
