From Hudson Yards to the World Trade Center, Downtown Brooklyn to SoHo, there’s a seemingly endless array of neighborhoods to relocate a business in New York City. Only one, the largest central business district in the United States, offers a central location with global prestige: Midtown Manhattan.
Although some businesses have increasingly looked elsewhere when it comes to relocating, Midtown Manhattan is set to be revitalized in the coming years as the recently-passed Midtown East rezoning kicks into high gears. The planned office developments and infrastructure improvements, along with the neighborhood’s central location, unmatched transportation options and world-class amenities, will undoubtedly help its regain its luster and continue to attract marquee companies as it has for decades. Here’s a quick look at why Midtown Manhattan could be right for your business!
Diverse Office Inventory
Midtown Manhattan boasts an incredibly diverse array of office building options for companies of all sizes and sectors. From Class A offices along Park Avenue and Madison Avenue for Fortune 500 companies to smaller, prewar buildings ideal for startups and even tech firms, the neighborhood offers something for every business out there. Future office developments from the Midtown East rezoning, such as One Vanderbilt rising adjacent to Grand Central Terminal, promise some 16 million square feet of new, cutting-edge office space as well.
Excellent Transportation Options
The district also boasts the most extensive transportation options in the city. It offers a dense concentration of subway lines at major hubs like Times Square as well as regional transit centers at Grand Central Terminal, Penn Station and the Port Authority Bus Terminal, all of which offer convenient access to the city’s suburbs. In addition, the neighborhood also offers an extensive bus network, ferry services and relatively easy access to JFK International Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and LaGuardia Airport.
Top Amenities at Your Fingertips
World-class shops, restaurants and theaters are packed into the district, offering plenty of after-work entertainment options as well as places to grab lunch. Bryant Park offers a great place to relax and unwind while the northern section of Midtown is just steps from the bucolic greenery of Central Park.
Unmatched Global Prestige
Finally, when it comes to prestige, the district simply can’t be beat. For companies seeking a world-class address that’s known in business circles throughout the world, Midtown is definitely the place to set up shop!
