Piedmont REIT Launches Capital Improvements at Financial District Office Tower

Piedmont Office Realty Trust has launched a significant capital improvement program at its 60 Broad St. building in New York’s Financial District. As part of the company’s ongoing investment in the 39-story glass and steel skyscraper, Piedmont has retained renowned New York architect – and building tenant – MA | Morris Adjmi Architects to design a new building entryway, lobby, elevator cabs and amenities. 

60 Broad Street is a prestigious address with a storied history, and we believe Morris Adjmi Architects’ creativity and skill will transform the building environment,” said Bob Wiberg, EVP of the Northeast region for Piedmont Office Realty Trust. “Adjmi’s trademark architectural approach will reinforce 60 Broad’s distinct character and deliver a refreshed and elevated lobby experience that sets a new standard for the Financial District submarket.” 

JLL executive managing director John Wheeler, VP Eliza Gordon and associate Thomas Swartz are the exclusive leasing agents for the tower.
