Curated amenities unlike anything in Midtown South

Inspired by some of the latest trends in work and hospitality interiors, this cutting-edge space is designed to easily flex from day to night and from work space to event space. Aimed at TAMI and FIRE tenants, the project embodies MAWD's "performance over ping-pong" approach to boutique commercial interiors.

With its popular location and distinctive architectural features, the projects provides an excellent opportunity to reach a new category of tenants setting up long term growth and success.

For this project we did a deep dive into the tenant mix to identify not only the companies that would be working in the space, but also their employees.

Highly Amenitized and Hospitality-Led

Columbia approached MAWD to create a differentiated product through increased customization for the target audience. The goal was to create spaces that embraced modern, flexible ways of working, for efficiency, value, and employee engagement.

New York is filled with non-commercial spaces where people love to work, and MAWD proposed bringing that feeling to 149 Madison.

A successful interior for 149 Madison would layer Columbia's brand with architectural elements authentic to the building. The warmth and earthiness of the building's exterior should be reflected in the interior.
