The Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park is one of the most sustainable office buildings in the U.S., and its groundbreaking energy saving features made the news rounds when it was completed in 2010. The state-of-the-art, glass-clad tower is also one of the tallest structures in New York City, and it offers high-quality office space in an excellent Midtown Manhattan location overlooking Bryant Park.
LEED Platinum, Class A Office Space Available
The 55-story tower at 111 Avenue of the Americas was developed by The Durst Organization and designed by COOKFOX Architects. The billion-dollar project features nearly 2.4 million square feet of Class A+ office space, as well as 37,000 square feet of first-floor retail. It was also the first commercial high-rise in the country to earn LEED Platinum certification.
One Bryant Park offers open, flexible, naturally lit and column-free office space, suited to fit the needs of modern workers, and also comes with a plethora of amenities. The technologically advanced tower features hospital-grade, 95% filtered air, abundant natural daylight and 9.5-foot ceilings, under-floor ventilation system with individually-controlled floor diffusers, round-the-clock air quality monitoring, and views of Manhattan through a clear, floor-to-ceiling, high-performance glass curtain wall.
Employees working at One Bryant Park also have access to the building’s Urban Garden Room at 43rd Street and Sixth Avenue, which is open to the public as part of the city’s POPS (privately owned public space) program. The office tower at One Bryant Park also houses the first ‘green’ Broadway theater, the 50,000-square-foot, LEED Gold-certified Stephen Sondheim Theater. Other onsite amenities include a large lobby bar at the orchestra level, a bar/cafe on the ground floor, and a restaurant at an upper mezzanine level.
Getting to and from One Bryant Park
The skyscraper benefits from an excellent location in the heart of the prestigious Plaza District. Sitting on the corner of Sixth Avenue and 42nd Street, overlooking Bryant Park, the tower offers easy access to a plethora of dining, shopping and entertainment options. Transportation to and from One Bryant Park is convenient, as the building is located near most major subway lines that run beneath Bryant Park and Times Square, which is just one block away.
Who is renting office space at One Bryant Park?
The energy efficient office tower at One Bryant Park offers state-of-the-art, high-quality Class A+ office space that is highly appealing to tenants across all industries. The building’s excellent location, coupled with a strong amenity package, make it a highly desirable place to work, and many big-ticket tenants have snapped up office space at One Bryant Park.
Bank of America is the anchor tenant of One Bryant Park, occupying six trading floors and 75% of the building.

How much is the rent price for office space at One Bryant Park?
Although over half of the building’s occupied space serves as the headquarters for Bank of America, there is plenty of prime office space available for rent in the tower, and the lowest six floors can function as trading space. Office asking rents in the Midtown area are not cheap, having reached a post-recession peak of $87 per square foot in the first months of 2019, per CBRE, and asking rents at One Bryant Park often rise above $100 per square foot. However, the tower’s state-of-the-art energy saving features and the top-notch amenity package keep attracting tenants, and there isn’t usually much vacant office space within the building.
