Urban Outfitters HQ Renovated from Abandoned Navy Yards
With three big brands all the same company – Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie and Free People; it would only make sense to have a office space that matches the “trendy” vibes that each posses. While the renovations cost $100 million, the four buildings cost $1 to buy each (yes that’s two 50 cent coins you read correctly!) much of the materials were reused and reclaimed into the 330,000 sq ft space.
Designed by Meyer Scherer & Rockcastle, this large space allows the brands to grow side by side, while allowing the public spaces to be their ‘mingling’ grounds between brands and buildings. The cafeteria, coffee shop, library, fitness center, and courtyard are all shared areas.
