Why bother leaving work for happy hour when you can bring happy hour to the office?
For lovers of world famous beer, the Heineken headquarters could be a dream job.
Heineken was looking to rent office space outside NY that would not disconnect them from their New York connections. Occupying over 60,000 square feet of office space right outside of New York City, Heineken U.S. headquarters spans across the 11th and 12th floors of 360 Hamilton. Heineken created an open and transparent environment that would inspire creativity, collaboration and company pride. There are graphics that have been strategically placed on the walls to keep the office environment engaging and exciting. Furthermore, there is an impressive staircase that connects the 11th and 12th floor which leads from the café up to the Heineken bar. The fancy amenities of this office include, a bar with a pool table, a lavish conference room that has exercise bikes and a game room with a Ping Pong table and an iconic English telephone booth.
The Spector Group created an office space that is luxurious, but energizing, and they left no stone unturned. The layout leans towards more of a bullpen format with several breakout areas throughout the office that promote creativity and collaboration.
If you want to get a real sense of what this stunning office looks like, then please have a look at the pictures below.
The Heineken office is located in White Plains in the North of New York. From one view, you can enjoy beautiful sunsets across the rolling hills of the Hudson Valley. Opposite of that, you can appreciate the Manhattan skyline with its tall buildings and bridges. They have deep, personal relationships with many of the business in this area and have the ability to attract new talent who come from New York, Hudson Valley and Connecticut. Rents in the area are substantially lower than NYC, perhaps by about 50% depending on the neighborhood. The commute also makes driving an easy option. For NYC residents, the ride to White Plains is 30-40 minutes from Grand Central Station.
