United Technologies Digital Accelerator

New York, New York

United Technologies Corporation (UTC), an industry pioneer and a 24-year fixture on the Fortune 500 list, formed United Technologies Digital to support the digitization of UTC and its respective industries. They called on Gensler to design a 67,000-square-foot accelerator space for United Technologies Digital that is located in a renovated warehouse within Empire Stores in the DUMBO section of Brooklyn along the East River. The design embraces the space’s original architecture to uniquely express UTC’s heritage and its evolution to digital. Amenities include the canteen, a bar, a game room, quiet cars, interview rooms, a board room, and a flexible multi-purpose room to host training sessions and meetings. Open to public view, a command center displays UTC’s products and an interactive digital screen to symbolize the intersection of digital and industrial product.
