In 2019, fintech firm Market Axess relocated from 299 Park Avenue to their new headquarters in the dynamic Hudson Yards development. The firm signed a lease for more than 80,000 square feet of space (three times the size of their previous location) across three floors in the west side’s newest boutique office tower.
Market Axess’ exciting new move dovetailed with a new branding initiative, as well as a desire to reassess their culture as a successful and growing financial technology firm. In collaboration with Spacesmith, they wanted to create a workplace that would attract new hires and allow for future growth.
Extending across three floors and connected by an impressive open central staircase, the ultra-modern, open space is designed to bolster open communication and collaboration, two of the top priorities identified by Market Axess leadership and employees.
Through a rigorous process of internal questionnaires, interviews with leadership and in-house vision sessions with a cross section of staff, data could be used to ensure their new home would reflect the company’s history and brand in a contemporary way, whilst providing a modern environment for agility, collaboration and productivity.
As New York’s newest commercial and cultural hub, 55 Hudson Yards is defined by its indoor-outdoor spaces, early modernism inspired exterior design and exceptionally efficient interior space planning. The interior planning of the building was conceived after extensive study of the space needs of professional service, financial, creative and technology firms. It is one of the few office buildings in the entire city that opens directly onto a park and sits adjacent to a No. 7 Subway station which connects to every other major subway line as well as Grand Central Station.
Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to explore one of the city’s most impressive case-studies of workplace transformation.
