Kimco Realty Corporation is a real estate investment trust that is one of North America’s largest owners and operators of open-air shopping centers. Upon reevaluation of their headquarters in Long Island, the Client felt that their current space did not properly reflect their company culture and that their technology infrastructure was challenged by existing equipment and facilities. TPG was engaged to reimagine their workplace as a space that conveys a dynamic environment for its proud employees while showcasing its historic legacy and accomplishments.
To assist in the design process, TPG’s Strategy team was engaged for visioning sessions and distributed employee surveys to determine which factors needed to be addressed in the new workplace. Kimco’s workforce expressed their desires for a space that enables productivity, inspires interaction, and enhances the brand. Based on these considerations, the office was relocated to Jericho, NY which provided an excellent opportunity to implement new design strategies.
Spread across two floors, Kimco’s new office celebrates modern design and places the employees at the forefront. Characterized by a crisp, white backdrop to compliment the deep blue of their brand’s identity, the space exudes a hospitality feel. With a predominantly open plan, the staff has access to daylight and views and amenities within reach. A beautiful café space with several seating options sits at the bottom of the feature stair, creating a dynamic point of interaction for staff.
