Intro

Popular, Inc., is a financial services conglomerate that has operated as “Banco Popular” in Puerto Rico for over 125 years and as “Popular Bank” in the mainland United States for over 52 years. 

 

Popular sought to create a new corporate headquarters on the East Coast.  They required a space that could incorporate its current Chicago HQ staff, its current NYC corporate office population and their new departmental program needs.  MOA created a space program to identify how much space they would require.  MOA joined Popular and their RE brokers within Manhattan and Jersey City to evaluate the different spaces available on the market at that time.  Ultimately deciding on two floors within the Financial District of downtown Manhattan where MOA fulfilled their budget and design requirements of a progressive yet timeless space.

Hilights:

  • the majority of office requirements were located in the core of the space so that the natural daylight of the perimeter windows was available to the bulk of the interior spaces.
  • the core office spaces were created utilizing a minimalistic glass partition system with a strategically placed frosted band to give the office user privacy while still allowing the space to feel open.
  • the executive area mimicked the general office area but with an upgraded use of materials to create continuity throughout the space while. evoking a hierarchy
  • a fun and comfortable break out room was created as an informal conference room.
  • energy efficient led lighting was integrated with a “day lighting” sensor system that dimmed or turned lights off when enough day light was present in the space.
