6 West 48th Street: MKDA Fits Out Green Office Space for Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors

The 17,000-square-foot office buildout includes a variety of green materials and products across the firm’s three floors of space.

Architectural and interiors firm MKDA has completed a 17,000-square-foot green office buildout for Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, a non-profit group that assists donors in philanthropic efforts across the globe. Rockefeller’s space is spread across the 9th, 10th, and 11th floors of 6 West 48th Street and incorporates a variety of green building products, though it’s unclear whether the project will pursue LEED-CI certification.

MKDA is entrenched in the green building field; senior vice president Daniel DeSiena is a founding member of Green October, New York City’s first green interior design exposition and trade show, and, over the summer, the firm completed a 3000-square-foot office fit-out for WhenTech, an option pricing, risk management, and software development company, on the 34th floor of LEED Gold-certified 7 World Trade Center. Studley represented Rockefeller in identifying and leasing the space.
