Debevoise new office

Post by crossexamination » Thu Nov 18, 2021 9:13 pm

Does anyone have intel on the new Debevoise office in Hudson Yards?

1. When is the move in date?
2. Will it have a cafeteria for breakfast/lunch?
3. Will it have a gym or other amenities?
4. Any idea of how much the gym subsidy is? (There's an Equinox near the building)

1. They've said current 2Ls will start full-time in the office, so that means before Fall 2023.
2. Not sure, but like, probably?
3. I don't think so, because of the Equinox in Hudson Yards that I think the firm subsidizes or something. There will be coffee shops and stuff as well as a fancy lounge on the top floor tho.
4. No idea.

Debevoise pays for half of your Equinox membership. (Equinox charges your CC, the firm pays you half via payroll.)

The info sheet that Debevoise sent out to offerees this OCI said the firm anticipates moving in "late 2022." Some other notes from it:
  • Four main social spaces, including:
    • two barista coffee bars, including a 25-foot, double-height space overlooking the Hudson River
    • grab-and-go extended-hours cafe
    • juice bar
  • On-site wellness center with medical staff and physical therapy
  • A bicycle room complete with private showers and changing rooms
More info at https://www.thespiralny.com/ since the firm behind the building is still trying to lease like half the floorspace - Pfizer and Deb are the main anchor tenants.

The real question is cubicles or not

No cubicles I believe, but the offices are all glass :)

So, does this mean Debevoise won’t have its own firm-only cafeteria with subsidized meals? It doesn’t seem like this high-end rooftop cafe in the building is geared towards (or would be priced for) everyday breakfast and lunch, right?
