Crowell & Moring has moved its New York office to Two Manhattan West in Hudson Yards.
The new office has 71,000 square feet on two floors of the 58-story office tower designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. The firm is the first tenant of the newly finished building.
Over the past five years, Crowell’s New York office has more than doubled in size to approximately 170 lawyers and staff but the move is not just about providing more office space. “We have moved to a better space to suit our growing needs,” according to Glen McGorty, managing partner of Crowell’s New York office. “This is an office that speaks to the caliber of our clients, the sophistication of our matters, and the client service excellence that we deliver across our entire firm.”
The office features floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the space with natural light, an innovative and efficient design, and modern amenities such as standing desks. The location provides easy access to nearby transit, including major transportation hubs Penn Station and Moynihan Train Hall, and iconic destinations, including Madison Square Garden and the High Line. All of the external offices are a standard size, and there is a multi-purpose room that spills out into a two-story reception area with a floating staircase. Took’s Café, named after one of the firm’s founders, Eldon H. (“Took”) Crowell, serves as a space for lawyers and staff to gather and build ties.
“This efficiently designed and state of the art space provides the opportunity to collaborate with clients and one another seamlessly in a post-pandemic era,” McGorty said. “The many stand-out features of our new office appeal to the next generation of diverse talent we continue to attract as we actively expand our New York team.”
