The Exxon Building is located on 1251 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY 10020 on the corner of 50th Street and 6th Avenue. Completed in 1971, the building stands at 54 floors tall and features over 2,400,00 square feet in office space for rent, making it quite an enormous structure. Although an older building, the structure was recently renovated to LEED-EB Silver standards and now offers comfortable space and support. The building sits in the heart of Midtown and subsequently benefits from some of New York’s best amenities. In addition to hundreds of restaurants in close proximity, 1251 6th Ave. benefits from being close to yellow, orange, and red MTA subway lines. The Exxon Building also stands in the heart of a central business district, making it ideal for organizations needing closeness to partner firms or clients. The Exxon Building was originally built as an expansion of Rockefeller Center, with its plans being first drawn by the Rockefeller family’s architect, Wallace Harrison. The Exxon Building is also the second tallest building in the Rockefeller complex, behind only the GE building. Although 1251 Avenue of the Americas is technically one of the tallest buildings in America, it is hard to distinguish because it is flanked on either side by building with similar height. As a result, although it’s as tall as the tallest buildings in the Boston skyline, it is relatively hidden within the swell of New York’s cityscape.



Midtown is the epicenter of business in New York City, the beating heart of everyday professional life in Manhattan, the "Big Apple" everyone's talking about.  In many ways, it's a microcosm of the city - its own ecosystem of interconnected businesses and neighborhoods. While it's most commonly associated with the modern marvel that is Times Square, there's more to Midtown than jam-packed sidewalks, throttling skyscrapers, and honking taxis.

This is the home of cool districts like Koreatown and Rose Hill, the patron of fine cultural institutions like the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the Scandanavian House, PierPont Morgan Library, and the Japan Society. Some of the best restaurants in the world hail from Midtown, like Thomas Keller's Per Se, Takayama's Masa, and Eric Ripert's Le Bernardin. Famed venues like the Ziegfeld Theatre movie palace, Carnegie Hall, and Radio City Music Hall never fail to charm. And we haven't even gotten to the shopping on 5th Avenue or the "Hamilton" craze on Broadway taking the world by storm. So you see, Midtown isn't all work and no play, but it does excel at work when you get down to it.

Midtown office space drives the commercial market in New York City. It isn't exactly cheap, coming at an average of $73/sqft, but its unbeatable public transit options and well-laid infrastructure still make it top dog for big businesses in need of office space for rent. As for the neighbors, take your pick. It's the media and advertising and financial capital of the world.
