The Lighthouse International Building is located on 111 East 59th Street, New York, NY 10022, between 59th and 69th Street. The structure was completed in 1962, tops out at 14 stories, reaches a height of 185 feet, and contains over 180,000 square feet of office space for rent. As 111 E 59th St is a medium-sized structure, it can be well-suited for small or mid-sized organizations that are not looking for large blocks of contiguous office space. Medium sized buildings in New York City are plentiful and are quite diverse in size and class offerings. As a result, barring any large organizations needing premium, contiguous space, middle-sized buildings can service a vast number of organizations. The Lighthouse International Building has been renovated at numerous time throughout its history. The improvements have served to improve the office space to modern standards as well as keep building lobby and infrastructure functional and up-to-date. The Lighthouse International Building is located in Midtown, which is Manhattan’s premier business district. Midtown Manhattan features a huge amount of commercial real estate and is one of the most densely populated pieces of land in the world. There are a huge number of skyscrapers, hotels, restaurants, retailers, bus stops, and train stations that saturate the neighborhood with high quality tenants and both native and tourist foot traffic. The result is a great selection of office space for tenants, and huge foot traffic numbers for retailers. 111 East 59th St. is highly accessible thanks to New York City’s extensive bus and train network. The Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) features a huge bus network which make nearly all portions of the city accessible. In addition, the building lies in close proximity to the MTA’s blue, green, yellow, and orange subway lines. These transportation options help make the building easily accessible.
The Upper East Side, comprising Lenox Hill, Carnegie Hill, and Yorkville, has a long history of affluence in New York City. Notable American families with homes here have included the Kennedys, Roosevelts, Rockefellers, and Carnegies.
Compared to the hustle and bustle of Manhattan neighborhoods further south, the Upper East Side moves at a slower, more relaxed pace. The large number of schools, playgrounds, and community centers make the neighborhood feel a bit more suburban. And of course, Central Park and Museum Mile are two of the most popular family destinations in all of the city.
The Upper East Side is also the scene of the newly opened Second Avenue Subway, much to the delight of residential and commercial tenants. The Q-line runs along Second Avenue from 72nd Street up to 96th Street, and has alleviated much of the pressure from the 4,5,6 lines.
Rents for commercial real estate spaces in the Upper East Side fall right at the city-wide average of $72/sqft. For this price you can join the midst of companies such as Dylan’s Candy Bar and Agata & Valentina.
