Midtown South Office Buildings With Easy Access to Parks 

Midtown South Office Buildings With Easy Access to Parks 

Access to outdoor space for commercial office tenants in Manhattan is no longer a luxury amenity, but strongly preferred for businesses in the market for commercial office space. Modern tenants are looking for spaces that prioritize wellness in the workplace, and developers recognize this shift in ideals. Virtually all current, high-end office developments in New York City feature on-site outdoor space, in the form of balconies, terraces, plazas, and rooftop gardens.

However, commercial office buildings near public parks have an advantage over these properties. Offering park access to tenants creates a separation from the work environment. This provides a chance to decompress and return to work feeling rejuvenated, thus increasing worker satisfaction and productivity. Luckily, Manhattan houses several public parks that fulfill this need.

Below you will find a selection of commercial office buildings in Midtown South that offer easy access to parks. If you’re interested in renting office space in these properties, reach out to Metro Manhattan Office Space at (212)-444-2241 or info@metro-manhattan.com.

Renting office space near Union Square Park can help companies attract and retain top talent, especially in the young tech-savvy cohort that values work-life balance above all else.
