Team New York
The New York office overlooks the city from the top floor of the iconic Chrysler Building.
The dynamic culture of the city is palpable in our office given that we cover everything from partnerships and sales, to client services and data analytics. The New York office opened in 2015, and moved to the Chrysler Building in 2017. With views overlooking one of the most famous skylines in the world, the New York office represents our clear vision in the city of possibility.
After completion of the Chrysler Building in 1929, the 71st floor was Walter Chrysler’s private apartment, that later came to be an observatory for the public until 2006. Now it is home to the Afiniti New York team of 10 people and 5 nationalities. Filled with natural light from the art-deco windows and surrounded on all sides by unmatched views of the city, the office doubles up as a unique and show-stopping event space.
The Chrysler Building
An office at the top of the Chrysler Building was a dream of Zia's since his early 20s.
The Chrysler Building opened in 1930 to mixed reviews. Some claimed unoriginality, others saw it as dull, and still others as too modern and a piece that wouldn't stand the test of time.
However, it is now seen as a paragon of the Art Deco architectural style; in 2007 it was ranked ninth on the list of America's Favorite Architecture.
James Sanders, an architect and author, joked that "the Award for Best Supporting Skyscraper" should go to the Chrysler Building as it's appeared in numerous films over the years - Thor, King Kong, Spider Man, Two Weeks Notice, the list goes on...
We love it because every time you see New York in a movie, we can say, "look there's Afiniti!"
The Afiniti floor has been designed to accent original features; the structure of the spire, the art-deco terrazzo flooring, and those famous windows remain centerpieces of the space.
