NEW YORK, July 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Convene has recently created a new amenity platform which is being rolled out at 780 Third Avenue, a 49 story office property owned by TIAA Global Asset Management.
The site is Convene’s 9th location, and provides the same workplace hospitality services the company is known for, in addition to a fitness center offered exclusively to building tenants.
The fitness and wellness program is the company’s first offering of a broader amenity program being launched to meet the evolving needs of today’s tenants.
Convene’s Co-founder and CEO, Ryan Simonetti, states: “Our offering at 780 Third provides a model for how Convene collaborates with landlords to increase asset values by improving the tenant experience. Today’s tenants (both large and small) prefer to sign leases in buildings with on premise services that support more agile and efficient real estate strategies and an improved workplace experience. Unlike other co-working and real estate companies who are focused on serving the on-demand needs of startup companies, we are helping to build a future where established enterprises can consume real estate and workplace services with a greater degree of flexibility and convenience.”
“As a landlord, we aim to provide space and amenities which allow businesses to thrive and be highly efficient. We believe that tenants at 780 Third Avenue will find these services extremely useful,” said Laura Palombo, Senior Director, TIAA Global Asset Management.
Convene is a workplace hospitality platform that develops, owns and operates on-demand services and facilities in commercial office buildings including meeting space, fitness and catering. The Company has hosted over two-thirds of all Fortune 100 companies and over half of the Fortune 500 in its network of retail conference centers which accommodate groups of up to 400 participants across 11 locations in 3 cities. The company plans to aggressively expand nationally and internationally with leading commercial real estate developers and landlords, including Brookfield Property Group, Durst, RXR, TIAA, SL Green, Vornado, and Lerner.
