Creating a new office that elevates FHLB’s technology hub into a state-of-the-art environment with upscale amenities to attract industry talent.
Federal Home Loan Bank desired an upscale, amenity-accessible space in Jersey City, New Jersey, to act as an extension and complement their New York City brand.

Capitalizing on the building’s architecture and sweeping views, the 51,824 RSF space is supported by partial open ceilings, intricate detailing and custom furniture. Supporting materials include marble, glass, wood and porcelain tile.

Office amenities incorporate a fitness center with locker rooms and showers, game room, an upscale cafeteria (with seltzer & coffee machines), additional pantries, and a transitional multi-purpose room that opens up to adjacent stadium seating to be used during town hall meetings and events.

Included in the open workplace floorplan is a central command center with a custom video wall for internal information distribution. Additionally, a specialized vault-room was designed with a pre-action system in case of a natural disaster. Private offices, an executive area with a board room and lounge, huddle rooms and graphics are also incorporated into the office design.

“You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality.”
