The Best of Both Worlds!
Have A Prime Manhattan Office and WFH Anytime!
Affordable Offices In Shared Legal Office Space

A full floor law firm at 485 Madison Avenue has 2 lawyers offices remaining for sublet (long term available). 

Both offices have 2 windows, and they are about 140 sq. ft. each.  The rent is $2,500 per month including Wi-Fi, full time reception service, conference room use, kitchen. B&W/Color Copies extra.

The space was recently renovated and features a windowed conference room immediately off the reception area, plus 2 additional conference rooms which are all available as needed, by just signing up.

This is a Class-A (Resnick) Plaza District office building with excellent management and security.  It is truly one of those buildings that's a pleasure to walk into with an inviting, open lobby.  The 16th floor offices offer very good light and nice city views.  They are available for immediate occupancy with a 1 year minimum term.  The "Host" law firm has 9 years remaining on their lease.  Individual office leases are renewable with a 3% per annum cumulative increase in the base rent.

Many small and solo practitioners who abandoned NYC during Covid have now come to the conclusion that having a place to work outside of their homes is essential.  While in-person work week has generally shortened across the board, it's become evident to many that WFH only "works" on a part time basis and having a workspace elsewhere provides a boost to productivity.

We are very excited to present the opportunity and we look forward to hearing from you.  Please contact Neal Lerner (212) 986-9100 or Email

LookingForSpace.com provides a niche matching service that connects law firms with extra offices to lawyers seeking office rentals in the premises of another law firm.  We provide listings for available space as well as ads for space wanted (reverse listings) placed by lawyers.  In the case of reverse listings, the sublessee places an advertisement describing what they are looking for - and the respondents are the sublessors who are genarally law firms with empty offices available for sublease.

Of course, just as you do, we charge a commission for successful services rendered.  The "landlord" side of the equation pays commission either for an offices available or offices wanted ad where the introduction we provided results in a new tenant actually moving into their space.

Offices Wanted ads provide an initially anonymous position for the lawyer that is advertising their needs.  LookingForSpace.com receives the initial inquiry to confirm the listing, before passing the "lead" on to the advertiser.  At that point, the advertiser is in a position to either respond to the inquiry, revealing their identity, or not respond at all - depending on how accurately the space being offered fits the requirement.

Grand Central Facts

Grand Central

The Grand Central neighborhood of Manhattan runs from 36th Street to 47th Street between Fifth Avenue and the East River, with the focal point being Grand Central Station at 42nd Street.  This is one of the most active commercial real estate leasing districts in NY, and it encompasses approximately 55,000,000 rentable square feet of Class A and B office space in the east Midtown area.

There is no better diverse collection of different businesses and practices anywhere, which makes the Grand Central neighborhood a prime location for shared professional office space in all industries.  Shared legal office space, shared financial office space, shared tech office space and shared medical office space abound in this area – it is also a very healthy coworking area.

An unbelievable selection of restaurants and unusual dining venues like food trucks and food courts abound, taking into account a busy hour for all 3 meals of the day.  It is home to corporate headquarters and is famous for its Park Avenue corridor as the corporate home to a diverse group of national and international corporations, as Grand Central Terminal is one of the busiest transportation hubs in Manhattan.  There is also a diverse selection of embassy locations, diplomatic missions,  and personnel due the the United Nations headquarters here.

Corporate headquarters locations include:  Bloomberg L.P., JPMorgan Chase, Time Warner, Citigroup, CBS, Ernst & Young, Deloitte, Estee Lauder, MetLife, Morgan Stanley, NBC, Sumitomo Corp., Hachette Book Group, Alitalia, Viacom, TBWA Worldwide, Univision, Thomson Reuters and of course The New York Times Company, and CUNY.

Important new construction includes buildings at 1 Vanderbilt Avenue, 380 Madison Avenue and 425 Park Avenue.  These projects coincide with the rezoning of the Grand Central office district which should revitalize the older office stock through renovation, construction and additions to modernize the inventory of available commercial office space.
