NYC’s Top 10 Commercial Interior Design Firms of 2018

Although exterior architecture often grabs headlines, it’s the interior design that usually makes or breaks a project. With that in mind, Commercial Observer has ranked New York City’s best and most interesting architecture firms that do commercial interior design work.

For our second annual interior design list, we queried top architecture firms and landlords to see who they trusted to handle the interiors for their top developments. Then we reached out to prominent commercial interior design firms and asked how many square feet they designed last year, the value of their projects and what they consider their noteworthy work from 2017. We tried to look beyond the numbers—which were the basis of our first list, published in October 2016—and consider who was doing the most interesting and exciting work. (Lists like these, especially when considering firms whose work is largely aesthetic, include a number of judgment calls.)

Whether they are designing Uber’s offices, renovating and converting the landmarked Waldorf Astoria hotel, or building out Citigroup’s world headquarters, we tried to include firms working on a diverse roster of projects, big and small.—Rebecca Baird-Remba

Squarespace Grows to 143,000 SF at 225 Varick Street

Hosting platform and website builder Squarespace has leased two more floors at 225 Varick Street in Hudson Square.

Squarespace inked a 12-year deal for 49,700 square feet on the fifth and sixth floors of the building, where it already leased 93,000 square feet on the 10th through 12th floors in 2014. Asking rent on the new lease was in the high $70s per square foot, according to The Real Deal, which was the first to write about the transaction.

The tech firm is expected to move into its new space in April 2018, according to CoStar Group.

Shake Shack also signed on for 27,000 square feet of office and retail space in the property between Clarkson and West Houston Streets last month. The upscale burger spot will open a flagship restaurant in the ground-floor retail space and a test kitchen on the lower level in mid-2018. It will also move its offices, which are currently located in Union Square, into part of the third floor in the spring of 2018.

Rocco Laginestra and Paul Myers of CBRE represented Squarespace in the deal, and CBRE’s Howard Fiddle, Paul Amrich and Neil King represented landlords Trinity Real Estate, Norges Bank Real Estate Management and Hines. A spokeswoman for CBRE declined to comment.
