Completed in 1902, The historic Flatiron Building is located on 620 8th Avenue, New York, NY 10018 by the corner of 41st Street and 8th Avenue. The structure is sizable, features over 180,000 square feet in office space for lease, and stands at 21 floors. Although an older building, the structure has been renovated repeatedly over the course of its long tenure. The building is completely leased to the publishing house Macmillian and hosts some 600 workers. The Flatiron Building sits in the District named after itself, and is a huge New York cultural icon. The Flatiron District is a lively, energetic, and electric neighborhood filled with publishing houses, advertising agencies, and stationery stores. There is ample access to transportation with green and yellow MTA subway lines as well as the NY/NJ PATH train. The building’s presence in Silicon Alley and its proximity to other firms make it a very attractive option for firms looking for space. The inside, however, is slightly awkward due to the building’s peculiar shape. Offices are often angular inconvenient for placing furniture due to the building’s triangular shape. In addition, men’s and women’s bathrooms are located on alternating floors one must take an auxiliary elevator on the 20th floor to get to the 23rd floor. The current owners of the Flatiron Building, the Sorgente Group, plan to turn the property in a luxury hotel after Macmillian’s current lease runs out.

Neighborhood

Union Square

Named after the “union” of Broadway and Fourth Avenue, Union Square is where NYU and The New School's young talent intersects with the tech savvy of Silicon Alley. No wonder so many startups in particular seek its confines for a headquarters.

On its own, Union Square Park acts as a little playground for busy professionals and buskers alike on a warm summer day or cool autumn evening. Its best-known feature? The mysterious Metronome on the art wall at 1 Union Square South, blithely counting down the hours til' midnight.

Union Square is also a favorite of foodies shopping for fresh ingredients. Union Square Greenmarket, the Union Square Holiday Market, and a Trader Joe's supplies many a dinner table in New York City.

Union Square offices are also sure to benefit from the accessibility to public transit at Union Square station and its proximity to commercial districts like Flatiron and Chelsea.

Office space for rent costs on average $68/sqft.

Nearby Districts Include: Chelsea, the Flatiron District, Greenwich Village, and the East Village.
