The Bertelsmann Building is located on 1540 Broadway, New York, NY 10036 on the corner of 45st Street and Broadway. Completed in 1990, the building stands at 42 floors tall and features over 1,100,000 square feet in office space for rent, make it quite a sizable structure. Although an older building, the structure has gone through a series of renovations in recent years which has substantially upgraded the building’s infrastructure and lobby. The Bertelsmann Building benefits from some of New York’s best amenities as it sits in the heart of Times Sqare. 1540 Broadway stands in close proximity to the orange, blue, and yellow MTA subway lines as well as hundreds of different restaurants around the neighborhood. In addition, the edifice’s proximity to the other office buildings that pepper Midtown make this space ideal for an organization needing closeness to partner firms or clients. The Bertelsmann Building served as the main headquarters and center of operations for the media conglomerate Bertelsmann until 2004, during which time they sold the property and leased out all of the office space they previously occupied. Current tenants now include Viacom, China Central Television, Yahoo, and Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman. Since its inception, the Bertelsmann Building has been one of the few structures in Times Square to offer true class A office space.

    Midtown

    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.

    Nearby Districts Include: The Garment District, the Upper West Side, and the Upper East Side
