Leading NJ-Based Construction Firm Creates Nurturing and Collaborative Design Studio For Luxury Watch Company’s Design Team
River Drive Construction, a leading New Jersey construction company, today announced that it has completed the renovation of luxury watch company Movado Group’s world headquarters at Mack-Cali Centre II, a Class A office building located at 650 From Road in Paramus, N.J.
River Drive, which served as general contractor for the project, created a more nurturing and collaborative design studio for Movado’s watch design team. A comprehensive restack of 11,000 square feet of space, the project entailed the development of workrooms, conference rooms, a library, a presentation room, a training room and a pantry.
Owned by Mack-Cali Realty Corporation, Mack-Cali Centre II is located adjacent to the Garden State Parkway and within walking distance of the Paramus Park mall. The 348,510-square-foot, five-story building features a full-height sky lit atrium overlooking a courtyard with pond, an on-site café, beautiful landscaping, outdoor seating and public transportation to Manhattan and throughout Bergen County.
“It’s always challenging to complete construction work in an occupied space, but this project was especially complex and required detailed logistical planning,” explained Joseph Langan, president of River Drive Construction. “Despite having to work within an occupied area with construction occurring in three different areas, our team did a fantastic job of completing the project on time and within budget without disrupting the tenant’s business operations.”
The renovation was designed by architectural firm Studio 1200 and furnished by Business Furniture, Inc.
