BlueMountain Capital Management – New York City Offices
BlueMountain Capital Management is a private investment firm with offices in New York and London. They specialize in portfolio management, trading, credit research, quantitative strategy, investment management support & analysis, and business management.
In 2006, TPG provided architectural services for BlueMountain’s 22,500 square foot space at 280 Park Avenue. It is trading intensive with an open floor plan that can accommodate up to 125 traders. The perimeter offices have glass fronts so that the partners can view the trading floor, adding further to the open, collaborative feel of the space.
Due to rapid growth, BlueMountain re-engaged TPG for an in-building relocation to a 50,000 square foot space on the 12th Floor of 280 Park Avenue, completed in 2014. BlueMountain sought to enhance the level of sophistication in their space, while staying true to their original look and feel. TPG preserved the intimacy of their former office in spite of the increased headcount and the challenging floor plate by creating many opportunities for encounters with coworkers at a number of its meeting spaces, unifying staff and strengthening connectivity. This resulted in an open, transparent environment featuring high-end materials and technology, which provides a variety of usable spaces for both employees and BlueMountain’s clients who visit the space.
