Bromley Tops Out on Microsoft’s Future NYC Headquarters 

Bromley Companies recently topped out on 122 Fifth Ave., an 11-story mixed-use project in Manhattan’s Union Square neighborhood. Scheduled to be complete by 2023, the adaptive reuse project will be home to the New York headquarters of Microsoft and other tenants to be announced. 

“With a brand-new rooftop pavilion and more than 300,000 square feet of commercial space, 122 Fifth Ave. is transforming the historic neighborhood of Union Square,” said Nicholas Haines, CEO of Bromley. “It was our goal to integrate the historical elements of this landmarked project while also meeting the needs of the modern tenant.,” ‘ 

Through a $100-million investment, Bromley has added a rooftop pavilion and terrace to the building, expanding it to 300,000 square feet. By expanding horizontally, the building’s core has been relocated, unlocking the plan for more efficient and larger floor plates with better eastern light into the space.
