The “Hub” in Long Island City is an old warehouse that is being converted into a large cool office building. The 4 floors and the main floor’s skylight are really amazing. There are several similarly converted warehouses in the neighborhood, like Falci and The Factory. The Hub is envisioning having a retail floor with food markets, a roof deck, and coffee shops in a brand-new concierge lobby, that will lead to elevators to the upper 2 floors. Eventually, they plan to go even higher and add floors on top.
Marketing Thru Graphics was hired to plan and build the Marketing Center that the brokers from Cushman & Wakefield use for their tours of potential companies.
I designed the large Plexiglas wedges around the columns to let the light from the spectacular skylight pass and reflect through them.
The building is located just one block away from the 7 train that connects to Manhattan within 10 mins. This area has become a center for new office developments of companies like Uber, Macy’s, Ralph Lauren ie.

Shortly after installing the Marketing Center MTG built the website. I designed the pages for Desktop, as well as responsive states for horizontal and vertical Phones. Becca went out to Long Island City to take a few photos of the neighborhood, and Ian programmed it. Looks nice, doesn’t it?
