40-42 Thompson, plus amateur alteration
Red Bull, the semi-official Austrian amphetamine of 2002 (and now a billion dollar company), is constructing a three-floor, 12,600-square foot office and showroom at 40 Thompson Street.
According to Aragon Construction VP Richard Hartz, Red Bull NY will channel the brand’s virility through “hung metal wire mesh ceilings, Pirelli Rubber floors, Color Kinetic lighting, and “steel-angled-in-glass partitions.”
And, of course, the space will include an amphetaminiacal 30-foot foyer.
