NYC Office Rentals Next to an Urban Oasis
Bryant Park is an urban oasis in the form of a 9.6 acre park located amidst the towers of Midtown Manhattan. The Bryant Park district spans from 40th to 42th Streets and is bound by Fifth Avenue to the east and Sixth Avenue to the west. The park is privately managed in a unique model that provides public space for all to enjoy. According to statistics, Bryant Park is the most densely occupied park in the United States, with an average of 800 people per acre, each day.
Many commercial office buildings line the park, including the new Bank of America Tower. Bryant Park’s commercial office space attracts tenants from the financial industry, as well as law and fashion.
Notable Class A Buildings
On the northwest corner of Bryant Park, the new Bank of America Tower, also known as One Bryant Park, is the third tallest building in the city. The crystalline, glass-clad structure holds the distinction of being the first commercial high-rise to achieve LEED Platinum certification.
Other notable Class A commercial office buildings in the Bryant Park neighborhood include 500 Fifth Avenue, an Art Deco Tower designed by the same architects behind the Empire State Building; the Salmon Tower, known for its elaborate bas-reliefs; and the W.R. Grace Building, a sloping glass tower designed by Gordon Bunshaft of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.
Amenities of a Privately Managed Park
Bryant Park is located within a Manhattan Businesses Improvement District (BID), which is run by the Bryant Park Corporation. This non-profit organization invests money into improving the street-scape and the pedestrian experience, which can only benefit businesses that choose to locate in the area. The Great Lawn of Bryant Park offers the largest expanse of green space in Manhattan south of Central Park, and it is a popular lunch and after-work destination for Midtown office workers.
The Convenience of a Central Midtown Manhattan Location
Bryant Park is located within the 10018 zip code. Its central Midtown location provides access to many subway lines, including the 42nd Street/Bryant Park station, which is serviced by the B, D, F, and M trains. Only a block to the east is Times Square, which is served by N, Q and R trains. Grand Central Station is short walk two blocks east and provides access to the 4, 5, 6 and 7 subway lines, as well as MetroNorth and Amtrak service out of Manhattan.
