The Flatiron Building: Among The Best Known Office Buildings in NYC

One of Manhattan’s first skyscrapers, the Flatiron Building overlooks Madison Square Park and features a prominent, wedge shape due it its position near the angular intersection of Fifth Avenue and Broadway. Its facade is detailed in the Beaux-Arts style, with a highly articulated base, middle and cornice. Behind the facade, the structure is comprised of a steel frame, which represented extremely modern technology in its time. In terms of name recognition, the building is almost as well known as The Empire State Building and The Chrysler Building. Renting an office in The Flatiron Building is dream for businesses seeking to acquire space in Manhattan. At the tip of the Flatiron’s triangular form, interior space compresses to less than seven feet. This results in unique, sometimes quirky office spaces, but most tenants find it charming. Aside from the distinction of renting office space in one of Manhattan’s most famous buildings and a National Historic Landmark, another advantage for tenants is the views of Madison Square Park and proximity to the N, R and 6 trains. However, as an older building it has flaws; the Flatiron Building’s elevator system is slow and bathrooms lack modern comforts. At this time, the Flatiron Building is rented exclusively by MacMillan Publishers. It was purchased by an Italian developer, who eventually hopes to turn it into a luxury hotel which explains why listings for office rentals are never available for the property.

Alan set us up in a much better space for less than we had been paying.

By far my most pleasant experience with a broker in searching for an office space. Alan listened to our requirements without judgement, and found us what we needed, where we needed it, and at the price point we wanted. Very responsive to emails and quick turnaround time on all matters. Would give more stars if I could!

It is been such a pleasure dealing with Alan from Metro Manhattan Office Space. He is upfront and honest and tries to find the right space to fit our needs. He was very successful in placing us in a building in New York City that was within our budget.

Thank you Alan and staff for your dedication to the success of my business

Love this guy! Called him on a Friday, from the train going home. He answered to phone himself and we spoke for over 30 minutes! That’s Great Customer Service! It took only two meetings with him to find a great new space. I was highly impressed with his knowledge, insight to my market.
Highly recommend him!
