Hines East Regional Office

 

40 Mercer, New York, NY
Located in New York, the Hines East Regional Office was established in 1981. Since that time it has successfully developed 36 projects in 27 cities and seven states throughout the region. The East Region has 10 acquisitions and 12 third-party management contracts in its portfolio. All told, it has completed or owns/manages a total of 33.5 million square feet in the region with another 3.3 million square feet currently under way. The East Region has developed the largest regional concentration of projects for financial clients in the firm nationwide.

 

A Current Regional Initiative

40 Mercer is an extraordinary testament to progressive architecture and ingenious engineering. This stunning, 15-story block-long new building offers magnificent glass curtain walls with a rhythm of clear glass panes intermixed with hues of red and blue.

A building unanimously approved by the city's Landmarks Preservation Commission in what the New York Times called "a decision of breathtaking importance for the future of New York."

Jean Nouvel has conceived a building in which glass acts as both a presence, as in massively scaled transparent sliding walls, and an absence, i.e. the disappearing floor-to-ceiling windows that bring the outside in.
