Goldman Sachs Global Headquarters
The new Goldman Sachs Global Headquarters contains six high-tech trading floors, thirty floors of office space and three floors of meeting and amenity space on the lower floors. A retail arcade surrounds the tower and reconnects walkways to surrounding buildings, shopping areas and the Hudson River Park.
The building’s presence is characterized by a play between angular geometries relating to the two dominant planning grids of Lower Manhattan and a sweeping, curved, west façade facing the Hudson River.
The building’s stainless steel and glass skin, coupled with three major setbacks as the building rises, animates the building’s form, while reinforcing its relationship to its surroundings.
