Aragon completes Penn Plaza project.

Aragon Construction, A contracting and construction management firm, HAS completed work on a 20,000 s/f fit out for DLB Associates at One Penn Plaza.

Together with SBLM Architects, Aragon reconceived the 26th floor of the iconic building, steps from Penn Station and Madison Square Garden between 33rd and 34th streets.

The new space includes l0 private offices, all of which are located en the perimeter.

"The strategic positioning of the offices--allowing for all units to include windows lets employees take advantage of as much natural light as possible," said David Jaffoni, project manager of SBLM.

The expansive windows also offer views of the Hudson River to the west and the New York Times building to the north.

Granite and wood finishes are featured throughout the office, while a neutral color palette of greens and beiges provides a classic, but modern feel. The open reception area and 6-foot wide hallways create an inviting atmosphere for employees, clients and visitors entering the office.

Five conference rooms--all outfitted with video conferencing equipment--will allow DLB employees to connect with clients around the world. The new offices also include one training room, three quiet rooms, two pantries, and two break areas. The larger break area spans the whole west end of the office with a 180 degree view of New Jersey.

"The needs of the client were our top concern when conceiving and executing the project," said Alex Getelman, president and founder of Aragon Construction. "We're pleased that we were able to complete the job on schedule and allow DLB to welcome in the New Year with their new offices."

DLB, which is based in Eatontown, New Jersey, has been a leading firm in the consulting industry for over 30 years. The new Manhattan office space will act as an additional location for the firm.

Broker Dana Pike of George Comfort & Sons, Inc. represented DLB in the transaction.

One Penn Plaza is the tallest structure in the Pennsylvania Plaza building complex, taking up an entire city block.

The 57-floor tower, which dominates Midtown South, reaches a height of 750 feet. Designed by Kahn & Jacobs, the building was completed in 1972 and is now owned by Vornado Realty Trust.
