Manhattan Medical Office Buildings
Medical office spaces for rent in NYC have specific requirements that are not essential in other commercial office space. Easy access for patients, proximity to a hospital, provisions for hazardous waste, sufficient electrical capacity for equipment, etc., are all part of what makes NYC medical office space rentals unique.
In addition to the necessities listed above, there is extensive daily foot traffic, the need for a clean and well-maintained building with excellent lighting…and you can understand why New York City commercial property owners tend to concentrate Manhattan medical office space in designated “medical buildings.” Some co-ops and condominiums rent or sell their ground floor or basement space to medical practices, especially if they’re located close to area hospitals.
Therefore, some buildings in NYC rent exclusively to medical offices and related healthcare businesses. Compliance requirements for the Federal American Disabilities Act (ADA) are particularly important for practitioners like physical therapists or neurologist whose patient population may be disabled.
Key neighborhoods for medical offices in NYC
The major hospitals in Manhattan are surrounded by medical office space rented by physicians, therapists, acupuncturists, chiropractors, dentists and other practitioners. The Upper East Side is in great demand because New York Presbyterian, Hospital for Special Surgery and Mount Sinai are all located in these neighborhoods.
The residential area of the Upper West Side is another neighborhood in high demand. Physicians, psychologists, physical therapists and dentists all want to rent a ground floor professional space to establish their practice in this desirable, upscale neighborhood.
How to find the right medical office space in NYC
When looking to lease medical office space in NYC, the most important factor to consider is location. Proximity to public transportation, as well as access to dining and retail, are crucial. Renting a medical office space in a business district with street signage is a great way to attract walk-ins and be easily reachable by patients who live or work in the area.
When you have very specific healthcare space needs, including build-outs, special plumbing, and ADA compliance, it makes sense to hire an expert. We know this market and have successfully represented dentists, physical therapists, acupuncturists and physicians in their search for medical space that best suits their needs and where the practice can thrive.
