Icon Real Estate
Victory identified early on that the office was evolving and created its proprietary brand ‘Icon’ as an innovative approach to meet these changing needs.
In Victory’s work with the Atrium in Amsterdam, and later with New Babylon, Central Post and Manhattan, it became clear that the needs of office tenants had evolved and that traditional real estate had not kept pace with these.
Top talent was focused not only on firms with great reputations but also on those that provided the best working environments. Office selection was being increasingly taken away from the facilities department and their focus on cost and efficiency, and moved to the human resources department prioritizing adding value to the working experience.
No longer can offices afford to be mundane boxes where employees walk past a sleepy security guard to sit at their desks all day. The office needed to become a vibrant, stimulating ecosystem that can provide a wide palette of services. Conference and meeting facilities, extensive food and beverage outlets, fitness and wellness venues and much more are required. With the creation of Icon, Victory is at the forefront of this trend and provides some of the world’s leading firms with the key services they want to provide to their staff, without those firms having to actually provide it themselves.
