Pace University’s building at 41 Park Row, formerly the New York Times Building, was constructed in 1888 and then expanded an additional 4 stories in 1904. The top floor had been occupied by various administrative offices and was largely untouched since Pace acquired and renovated the building in 1951, until Pace decided to gut renovate the floor for a new executive suite as part of a larger reshuffling of administrative areas around campus.
Working with the university’s design and construction team, Fradkin & McAlpin designed the new 7,500 sf space, which consists of 15 private offices, conference rooms, amenity spaces, and the historic Robert Pace Study which the team re-envisioned as an intimate meeting room and university archive. The suite showcases a double-glazed acoustic storefront system with wood paneling, state-of-the-art audio visual technology, and a mid-century inspired vocabulary and palette which brightens the space while maintaining a high-end “executive” feel appropriate for the President, Provost, and other university heads.
