There is a very efficient small office space at 11 East 44th Street (between Fifth and Madison Avenues). The unit is 1,650 sq. ft. and the reason I'm writing about this commercial office space (private space) is because the layout and measurement represent an extraordinary efficiency because it consists of 3 windowed offices (1 Partner and 2 Associates) as well as a large windowed conference room. This is a shallow space with one full wall of windows. There is a reception area and room for 2 workstations, files, copy machine etc. There is also a very nice, small kitchen. This space is available for a 5 year term (or longer) with a starting rent of approximately $7,300 per month plus electricity. Some free rent will also be available at the beginning of the Lease. To see the floor plan for this very efficient office space CLICK HERE.
As you can see the price of this office is rather competitive. It will also come with brand new paint and carpet (of your color choice). The "catch" is that the space is on a low-rise floor and while there is light, there are no views from the windows other than the neighboring building (except for the conference room which views the street). So there is a reason for the excellent pricing. However if you are looking for an efficient layout for new boutique office space for your law firm or financial firm (or other professional firm) this is a good bet for an office space that makes particularly good use of each square foot that you rent.
Here is a Downtown NYC example at 61 Broadway which is a very well located building proxmate to public transportation - Wall Street - and all downtown amenities. This space is in a building with an excellent, restored marble lobby with good security. The space itself is part of a 15,000 square foot full floor law firm with shared amenities available to the subtenant: shared reception area, full time professional receptionist, 3 shared conference rooms, shared kitchen etc. The rental for the available offices includes high speed internet service that is of sufficient bandwidth to run your own VoiP telephone system (bring your own phones).
This is also an efficient space where the 3 offices (1 Partner, 2 Associate) are next to each other on the Broadway side of the building. CLICK HERE to see the listing and photographs of the offices. Immediately outside of the offices there is a wide hallway / work area - which is large enough to incorporate a workstation (or standard desk with a return), as well as a large dedicated copy machine and room along the wall for at least 4-5 lateral filing cabinets with overhead storage. (Note, the workstation/desk, copy machine and filing cabinets are not currently in place. It is anticipated that the subtenant will provide these items.) The offices are partially furnished with desks, chairs, shelving and cabinets. They will be freshly painted and the carpet will be professionally cleaned prior to occupancy. This office sublease is on the "shorter" term side, with a Lease that expires in April 2018. It is anticipated that the Tenant will extend their occupancy but this cannot be guaranteed. If you are interested in subleasing this space you should anticipate moving out at the end of April 2018. So this will be a "swing space" opportunity that is initially a 15-month sublease term.

Our operational niche is office space for law firms. We help law firms with extra offices by promoting the offices directly to other attorneys who are looking for shared legal office space. Firms with extra offices can advertise them on our website where principals make direct contact with other principals. In some cases the sublessor asks LookingForSpace.com to be the initial point of contact to describe the space and the attributes of the offering. Generally, in these cases, after your first contact with Neal Lerner in our NYC office, you will be introduced directly to the principal or administrator that is working on the disposition of the offices you are interested in renting.
It is free to search all of the listings on our website. We try to offer a broad selection of offices and groups of offices available for sublease. If your firm has extra offices please note that we have had a number of success stories lately and the sublease of groups of offices (in the range of 3 offices / 4 offices / 5 offices or 6 offices - and by negotiating successful subleases for all of these larger groups of offices, we have simultaneously depleted our inventory of available spaces - and we need new listings.
