I am pleased to report that the initial phase of our new space at 20 West 55th Street has begun … demolition! Alyssa and I went to the space the other day for a meeting with the building’s architect to discuss a few small issues that arose after the demolition. Nothing real serious, but a column emerged in the exact location of an office door. It turned out to be an easy fix.
Our recent visit was the first time we saw the space without the previous tenant’s buildout. They were some sort of financial company, so there were many smaller offices and an area in the back where people sat at long desks with computer screens — it looked like one of those scenes from a movie. You know, dozens of people with computer screens and telephones, buying and selling stocks, etc.
It will be a couple of weeks before the architect has formal plans for us to review. We will keep you posted on the progress.
