  • TPG Architecture has designed the new offices of tech company Updater, located in New York City, New York.

    Updater has outgrown its current offices in the Flatiron District after more than doubling the size of its team. Spread across a single floor, the new space more than quadruples the size of the current headquarters to nearly 10,000 square feet and boasts sweeping views of USQ Park.

    Updater’s new home will house 75 employee workstations, 8 conference rooms, multiple lounge areas and whiteboarding stations, an iPad conference room reservation system, stadium seating for team meetings and very importantly, top-of-the-line video conferencing solutions for Updater’s growing remote team.

    In an effort to create a unique space, Updater customized the office buildout with the help of Carly Jacobson of TPG Architecture, who previously designed Spotify’s New York Office. Additionally, Updater commissioned Eliza Blank, the green thumb behind Twitter and Kate Spade’s workspaces, and Paul Maslov, the artist who laced Refinery29 and Venmo with his custom mill and steel work. Previously commissioned by the New Yorker, ESPN, and The New York Times, Updater challenged Greg Kletsel to create a custom mural that depicts Updater’s exciting journey thus far and the comedy innate to the process of moving on the surrounding walls.

    Managed by ABS Partners, the complex is conveniently located just minutes from 8 Subway lines, access to the PATH train and tons of nearby restaurants and bars. Updater’s employees and guests can also look forward to downtime with ping pong & foosball tables, a selfie booth and accompanying swag bar.
