Formerly known as the World Financial Center, Brookfield Place is one of New York City’s premier business addresses. Recently renovated, the complex – located in Battery Park City in Lower Manhattan – is in high demand among media, technology, retail and financial companies nowadays.
Though somewhat overshadowed by the larger and more famous World Trade Center nearby, Brookfield Place can certainly hold its own when it comes to attracting new tenants looking for quality office space in a prime Lower Manhattan location. Here’s a quick look at why your business should consider relocating there.
Excellent Transportation Options
Brookfield Place offers a wealth of transit options nearby. The complex is just a brief walk from the 11 subway lines at the World Trade Center Transportation Hub and Fulton Center as well as PATH train service to New Jersey. In addition, it’s also accessible by several bus routes, close to the Staten Island Ferry and hosts the Battery Park City Ferry Terminal, offering waterborne access to Jersey City, Hoboken and other locations across the Hudson River. The complex is also just a short subway ride from Penn Station, Grand Central Terminal and the Port Authority Bus Terminal and is convenient to the region’s three international airports, especially Newark-Liberty International Airport.
Outstanding Amenities Nearby
The complex’s new renovations have added a rich array of shops as well as restaurants and the popular Hudson Eats food hall and Le District market, two popular lunch destinations. It also enjoys easy access to Battery Park and direct access to the Hudson River waterfront, offering plenty of places for employees to relax on lunch break or after work. Brookfield Place is also very convenient to the Financial District’s bevy of amenities as well.
Flexible Office Space
In addition to all of this, the complex features some 8.5 million square feet of modern office space equipped with flexible floorplans and striking views. Financial firms, tech companies, media conglomerates and all sorts of retailers have set up shop here in recent years.
The complex is very convenient to all of Downtown Manhattan’s amenities and transportation options, but feels a world away tucked away in Battery Park City. This offers a unique mix of having all of Lower Manhattan’s amenities and transit options at your fingertips, yet in a less crowded and more relaxed and scenic location.
