Ad agency ndp opens in its new space in Scott’s Addition
Advertising agency ndp opened its new 15,900-square-foot office in Richmond’s Scott’s Addition on Dec 1, the same day that its merger with Richmond-based Free Agents Marketing took place.
The office is located at 2912 West Leigh St. in a converted one-story warehouse built in the 1940s.
The space is designed for creative collaboration with open workspaces, a work café, presentation rooms and magnetic walls to hang work-in-progress. It also has a wellness room and a shower for employees who commute by bike or on foot.
In a nod to the building’s history, ndp said exterior walls were preserved and interior doors and flooring repurposed when possible.
The Richmond office of Hickok Cole, a Washington, D.C.,-based architecture firm, designed the office. Hickock Cole is known locally for its design of the collective workspace called Gather.
The ndp offices in Roanoke, Chattanooga and Norfolk remain open.
“December 1 marks our collaborative effort in several significant ways, “ Danny Fell, president and CEO of ndp, said in a statement. “For starters, there’s our new space that focuses on our staff working together for the best possible outcomes for our clients. And then there’s the official start of ndp and the former Free Agents Marketing as one firm, with one name, and one central purpose.”
The former Richmond offices of ndp were located for 10 years at 1 E. Cary St. That property is for sale.
