Times Square Plaza

TIMES SQUARE, NYC

In addition to office and retail properties, Metropolitan has developed large urban projects for third party clients.

Pictured above is 1500 Broadway located in the heart of Times Square. Metropolitan was contracted to reposition an existing office tower to include a major television and movie studio and incorporate massive changes to the structural steel systems and foundation and add vibrant, colorful signage to the building’s facade on Times Square. The three year project culminated in the tenancy of ABC Studios and the production of signage which tripled the asset’s valuation.

1201 Pennsylvania Avenue

WASHINGTON, DC

After founding the Washington, D.C. office of Cabot, Cabot & Forbes, Cary Euwer, serving as Regional Partner, began the development of 1201 Pennsylvania Avenue. Completed in 1981, 1201 Pennsylvania Avenue was one of the first state-of-the-art office buildings to be constructed along Pennsylvania Avenue in many years. The project’s exceptional quality and outstanding design helped to re-establish the Avenue, after decades of decay, as a prestigious business address in Washington.

The 420,000 square foot office tower features a landscaped interior atrium extending from the entrance lobby to a skylight on the roof, which provides a central theme to the building and allows for attractive interior offices. Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, “1201” is sheathed in flame-cut granite and gray solar glass. The project is considered to be one of the premier addresses along the Pennsylvania Avenue corridor. Since its completion, it has been home to Convington & Burling, one of the largest law firms in the city.

Louis Vuitton, Tysons Corner

TYSONS CORNER, VA

Some of the finest retailers in the world have selected The Fairfax Company, a wholly owned affiliate of Metropolitan, as their General Contractor. Clients such as Tiffany & Co., Louis Vuitton, Saks Fifth Avenue and Mark Cross demand the same level of service from a General Contractor that they are accustomed to providing to their own customers.

The Louis Vuitton store in Tysons Corner illustrates the unique needs of the high-end retailer. In order to open for the Holiday shopping season, the store was constructed on a 24 hour a day schedule allowing completion in only three weeks.

Tiffany & Co., Tysons Corner

TYSONS CORNER, VA

The Tiffany & Co. store at Fairfax Square was its first entry into the Washington, D.C. market and Metropolitan’s first development to incorporate luxury retail. As part of the transaction, Metropolitan was required to compliment the tenancy of Tiffany & Co. with other luxury retailers opening within the same time frame. Metropolitan completed lease negotiations with Hermès of Paris, Gucci, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, and Morton’s of Chicago to become Washington’s first and largest luxury mixed-use development.

The Tiffany & Company store at Fairfax Square is the second largest store after Tiffany & Company’s flagship store on Fifth Avenue in New York. The three building project was designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill; and it became the local headquarters for distinguished corporate tenants such as AT&T, Ernst & Young, Merrill Lynch and PaineWebber.

Tiffany & Co., Palm Beach

PALM BEACH, FL

Pictured is 259 Worth Avenue located in the center of the historic Palm Beach shopping district. At the request of Tiffany & Company and Hermès of Paris, Metropolitan was contracted to develop a corner parcel for a long-term lease. Metropolitan acted as real estate consultant, project manager and construction manager throughout the entirety of the process. Hiring local architects and consultants, Metropolitan was able to completely build facilities for both retailers in less than eight months from conception to final store opening. The process included the difficult task of review and approval of the Palm Beach Historical Commission and building under the restriction of limited construction hours before the winter shopping season.
