Hell of a waste of money spent in United States to house a despicable person like Betteman. Once we get rid of him the NHL will improve sizeably

TPG completes National Hockey League headquarters 

When New York based TPG Architecture was hired by the National Hockey League (NHL) to design its new headquarters at 1185 Avenue of the Americas in Midtown Manhattan, the firm was given a directive to design an office space that reflected “the spirit of the game”.

The new League headquarters provides 135,000 sq ft of office space on five floors: 11-15. TPG has integrated the architecture, branding, and graphics into a unified design concept. The 15th floor, which is the public face of the League, is a highly branded space that includes floor to ceiling environmental graphics in the elevator lobby, an 8-foot League crest located inside the office doors, high definition video and gaming stations, a Stanley Cup shrine, and an ice-bar.

Also included in the space is a newsroom and large pantry café. Hockey sticks have been used as the material to create a wall facade and team jerseys and other hockey-related paraphernalia are installed throughout the space to further the client's branding. The project uses smooth lines and glass reflecting the idea of ice and steel that is central to the game.
