432 Park Avenue is one of NYC’s most recognizable buildings–and one of the tallest residential buildings in the western hemisphere. At the base of this iconic tower is 36 East 57th Street and 40 East 57th Street. This elegant new boutique building offers sophisticated office floors and retail space respectively. The prestigious midtown location, directly across from The Four Seasons Hotel, is ideal for high-end office and retail tenants. Pace was hired to create the brand and to market this spectacular new space.
A Milestone Event. A Major Campaign.
On October 4th, CREW New York, the leading organization for professional women in commercial real estate in New York City, celebrated its milestone 40th anniversary with a spectacular gala at the Edison Ballroom in Midtown Manhattan. To brand, market and promote the event across all channels, the organization chose us as its partner.
“The space is great, but is there a coffee bar and wine lounge?”
Look through a commercial real estate (CRE) industry publication or website these days, like Bisnow, The Commercial Observer, South Florida Business Journal, Real Estate Weekly, or The Real Deal, and you’ll see ad after ad touting available office space. We know, because we create a lot of those ads! That’s nothing new. But lately, one of the things you’ll notice about these ads is how many of them are promoting the variety and uniqueness of a building’s office amenities.
We work with many developers, commercial and residential. So we understand the importance of marketing amenities. But the practice of developing and marketing unique office amenities to potential commercial tenants has really been a recent trend – and it’s taking off like a rocket.
One of our favorite things to do as a creative agency is naming. It’s a critical part of the branding process, whether you’re a consumer packaged good… or a high-rise commercial office building. We often drill home the importance of creating the right name for our commercial and residential real estate clients. That’s why we were so interested to read this great piece from BISNOW, titled: What’s In A Name? How And Why Landlords Rebrand Their Buildings. We encourage you to read the full article (see link below for your convenience). And here we’re sharing a few key takeaways:

Our client, George Comfort & Son, has a BIG challenge – and a very unique opportunity: how to market a HUGE block of space at 28 East 28th Street in NoMad.
