The Best of Both Worlds!

Part Time and Full Time Legal Office Sublets Available in Midtown Manhattan (1 Year Minimum term)

Work 3-days per week from your dedicated shared legal office, and spend the balance of the week working from home.

A full floor law firm at 485 Madison Avenue has up to 3 offices available for sublet (1 year minimum, longer term available). The first office has the option to be used on a part time (3 days per week) basis.  You will share the office with a 2-day co-subtenant, who will never be in the office at the same time you are.  You will jointly choose furnishings (use ours or bring your own) for the office, and will jointly decide what gets to hang on the walls of your office.  The constant factor is that when you leave, every day, you stow all personal items so that your co-subtenant is greeted by a clean, empty desk.

Office 1:  AVAILABLE 3-DAYS PER WEEK - Rent:  $2,000 per month

Full office facilities use, Monday, Wednesday, Friday
(Your fractional use does not come with joint and several liability - each co-sublessee will have their own sublease and each will only be responsible for their own obligations.)

The 3-day rent with a legal address and lobby directory includes: full time receptionist to meet and greet your visitors, use of any of 3 conference rooms by prior sign-up, and kitchen use.  There are color and B&W copiers (extra) as well.  Internet is included.  Bring your own phones.

Office 2:  Full Time - $2,800 per month

Office 3:  Full Time - $3100 per month

This is a Class-A (Rudin) 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.

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

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.
