GLG Opens Global Headquarters
Jul 8 14
GLG opened its global headquarters, stepping into a new model of transparency and collaboration in the workplace. The office is the first of its scale in the United States to embrace activity-based working, an innovative concept that eschews assigned personal workspaces for a more flexible and productive approach to work life. GLG's new headquarters encompasses more than 64,000 square feet over two now-connected floors of W&H Properties' historic One Grand Central Place (formerly the Lincoln Building). The building is located at 60 E. 42(nd) Street, at the top of Vanderbilt Avenue, across from Grand Central Terminal. The office is the latest project from Clive Wilkinson Architects and the 'Superdesk' for the Barbarian Group's New York offices. It is also the first major project completed in the new Vanderbilt Avenue corridor, part of the Midtown East area which has recently seen an increase in development projects, and received intense focus from both the Bloomberg and de Blasio administrations. The new headquarters, which has work space for 350 employees, clients, and guests, represents an important new opportunity for GLG. The activity-based working approach to the open office plan has gained a foothold in companies in Australia and parts of Europe. GLG's new office is organized into 'neighborhoods' of team tables, brainstorming stations, quiet concentration areas, telephone booths, meeting pods, conference rooms, an atrium, and a coffee bar. Employees move from neighborhood to neighborhood depending on the work they're doing. To make this work, employees have lockers to store their belongings overnight. They all use laptops that dock at screens where they choose to work. They still have office phone numbers, which run through their laptops with headsets.
