Springdale Green reimagines the conventional workplace environment by transforming and healing a 30-acre former petrochemical tank farm into an environmentally conscious office campus, restoring native meadows, woodlands, and an urban creek tributary. Naturally, this was a great fit for the New York Times Square Feet Section's article on nature-inspired amenities in the workplace, Office Dangles Beehives and Garden Plots to Coax Workers Back. The latest trends in office spaces include spaces for employees to access fresh air, sunlight and nature.
Springdale Green is “more outside than inside,” said Philip A. Mahoney, executive vice chairman at Newmark, which is handling leasing.
Designed to be immersive and engaging, an elevated boardwalk forms a continuous meandering loop through the campus’ various eco-zones. In addition to the extensive campus landscape, the office buildings boast a number of garden-like roof terraces that offer intimate and comfortable nooks, allowing visitors to soak in the botanical wonder and delight that surrounds them.
