Currently expanding from the sixth to the seventh floor, our Marx Realty project is approximately 11,536 RSF. A new staircase connecting these two floors is under construction. With an open floorplan and custom millwork, this space is being equipped with unique amenities such as a golf stimulator and a nap room. The lighting is above building standard, and the color palette is rather moody with a warm, residential feel overall. The addition of bold stones and copper accents are to add an excellent touch to this interior upon completion.

The EJ Minskoff Building, located at 590 Madison Avenue, is one of our projects currently underway. We are redesigning the  twenty-ninth floor with 13,743 RSF of space to work with. We are creating an open workspace design with a combination of co-working spaces and private offices along the perimeter of the interior. There are conference rooms scattered around the space with a large boardroom that holds up to 20 people. Design wise, open slab, accent lighting, and high-end acoustic titles surround the space. Natural materials such as real wood, natural marble stone, and a moss green wall at reception characterize this interior. It is set to have a clean and minimal, bright-white look with light carpeting and a minimalist glass front.
