The JACX takes workspace innovation to new levels as the largest creative new office development in New York today. With two identical towers, offering sweeping views on all sides, this hub is connected by a landscaped terrace designed to bring the outside in. It serves as a quad where tenants can socialize, relax, dine or work.
Gone are the dreary interiors of endless cubiclized layouts, acoustic ceilings, and drab, sun-less spaces. In, are open and airy environments with a variety of seating options, communal tables, and plenty of natural/industrial touches that help us worker bees maintain some connection to the outside world. The materials and palette, with artful bands of glass and terra-cotta, united by the rugged texture of concrete, bring a distinctly modern twist to the beloved elements of LIC’s industrial-era past.
The open floor plates, enabled by the side-core construction, provide visibility from end to end and flood the space with natural light, allowing ultimate flexibility in office configuration. From locally crafted steel elevator cabs to architectural wood fin detailing throughout the lobbies, the character of the JACX will come as much from its people as from the materials that surround them – paying homage to LIC’s industrial past.
The verdant one-acre park on the 5th floor terrace is a botanical wonder, with greenery combining lush meadow plantings with poplar trees for shade.
Seasonal plantings ensure year-round greenery, with over 25,000 flowering bulbs and 100 trees. This amazing space acts as a natural oasis in the midst of an urban world.The JACX combines form, function and innovation to bring efficient and creative solutions to change the nature of how we work today. With generous ceiling heights, efficient floor plates, sweeping views, and the most modern infrastructure, the JACX is a vertical campus designed to meet all needs..
