We have several move-in condition situations that are available for shorter term, between 2 and 4 years. Our inventory of private commercial office space encompasses all space available for lease or sublease in Manhattan, but the units posted on our website are a curated list that was developed specifically because the offerings were for space that was purpose built for law firm use.
The first space is more appropriate for a mid-size firm and would be perfect for an initial satellite office for a larger firm located outside of NYC. It is located on Corporate Row, on Avenue of the Americas at 47th Street and it encompasses a full, high rise floor that is in move in condition with 19 offices and a large board room. This space is completely furnished with an above standard furniture system and it incorporates 30, full height workstations (cubes) with loads of built in storage both above and below the work surfaces.
This office space is completely fitted out from an IT wiring and telephone system standpoint - so the incoming firm will just connect its servers and move in to a fully functioning and outfitted office space available for immediate occupancy. Here is a link to the listing:
On the other side of the spectrum, we've got a nice shallow unit at 570 Lexington Avenue on a mid-rise floor with great light and views, that is perfect for law firm use (and was formerly occupied by a law firm). The space incorporates 2 partner offices and 2 associate offices and a fifth office can easily be added. There is a large windowed conference room and room for 2 workstations. The pantry has running water.
The nice thing about this space is that the landlord is willing to do either cosmetic work or a refurbishment with new walls and ceiling where required - this small space can be customized to your needs along a full perimeter of windows with great light and views. There is a double door entrance immediately off the elevator, and there is only 1 other tenant on this floor.
The building has excellent security and management and offers one of the nicest art-deco lobbies in New York City (Formerly the GE Building). The price and term are negotiable. The Unit is 3331 rentable sq. ft. and the striking price on a 5-10 year deal will start in the area of $59 - $62 per sq. ft. (approx $16,500 per month), depending on the amount of work required as well as length of term. This is a direct lease from the Landlord, and a shorter, 3 year term will be considered with fresh paint and carpeting, if your firm can use the existing installation.
