The New Ogilvy


View Larger Map

Bye bye Madison Ave., hello 11th. The new Ogilvy & Mather (pronounced may&#151ther) offices are nearing completion! The digs are at 636 11th ave., way the hell over there in Midtown West, Hell’s Kitchen, Clinton &#151 whatever they’re calling it these days.

The site dedicated to the “new ogilvy” has some decent stuff as far as updates on the project go. Though if we were working there we wouldn’t be too stoked about the shared desk situation. Oh, and the three or four avenue walk from Port Authority or Times Square respectively will suck hard. Trust. When the Hudson wind hits the faces of O&Mers as they tromp westward, they’ll certainly be thinking, “David never would have stood for this.”

Whatev, it isn’t too far from their current spot at least. Slummin’ ain’t easy! Click here to learn more about the progress.
