It’s hard to imagine life without Spring New York. Since opening its doors last September, the mammoth photographic studios, which occupy a former Verizon building in Tribeca, have since become a regular home to fashion shows, the Independent art fair, the Tribeca Film Festival and countless other photo shoots and events for brands across the gamut.
In the past few weeks, the multidisciplinary space quietly unveiled the next phase of its overarching concept: a collaborative workspace and social membership club that promises to turn the entire venue into an innovative cultural hub.
Known as Spring Place, the co-working/member’s club concept goes beyond just offering stylish work environs in an enviable zipcode. Spring Place does one better by providing a world-class concierge service (one recent coup includes procuring tickets for the musical Hamilton at short notice), production and editing suites, a reference library, private catering and tech support at the ready to overcome any problems. Together with beautifully designed boardrooms, executive suites, temporary showrooms and insulated conference call booths all spread over an entire floor of the building, Spring Place offers a forward-thinking selection of amenities in one very pretty package.
Of course it’s no good to just focus on work. On a separate floor, Spring Place also operates an all-day dining restaurant, bar and lounge, which in turn comes with two private dining rooms for more reserved situations. A glamorous, sunken living room and a cosy, den-like music room are available for performances, receptions, workshops, guest speakers and more.
With a private cinema and a 10,000 sq ft roof deck still to come later this year, Spring Place’s final footprint will come in at over 140,000 ft of work and play space at their members’ disposal. And the aspirations won’t just stop there – locations in Los Angeles, Brooklyn, London, Paris and Milan are all looming on the horizon.
