One Grand Central Place, formerly The Lincoln Building, contains a million and a quarter square feet of commercial office space on large floors at the base (3rd through 8th floors are 42,000 to 48,000 sq. ft. each) to mid size floors in the mid rise that are about half an acre each (10th - 31st floors are about 24,000 sq. ft. each) tapering off to a very interesting floor plate for a small to mid size firm: the 32nd to 55th floors are 12,400 sq. ft. each.
The interesting thing about these floors is that they have bright windows with good views on all 4 sides. They can accommodate 4 large corner partner offices with a good number of associate and junior partner offices between. If needed, these floors offer large windowed board rooms and they have sufficient depth (the shape is rectangular) to incorporate interior offices as well as a good number of workstations for legal secretary or paralegal use.
The building has a history of being a hotel for attorneys. It just feels "Law like" and solid. There used to be a law library on the ground floor - but that has gone the way of most law libraries. The building currently has a conference center that tenants can utilize.
There are over 160 solo practices and small to mid size law firms operating out of this building. They include
Along with the rectangular floors, all of the windows in the space are operable - so when you need fresh air you have it (including hours when the air conditioning system is not normally on). This is a very nice "old school" feature that you no longer find in new construction of commercial office buildings. All in all this is a very well located building with underground access directly to Grand Central Station and by association, about 8 other buildings from 42nd Street on the south, to the northern entrance to the Grand Central underground at 48th Street and Park Avenue. So, by association with this network, you've got a great (foot) transportation network that you can take advantage of and get all kinds of places Grand Central without a coat in the winter and without an umbrella when it is raining. That is super convenient and a big reason to think about office space that links directly to the MTA.
