Two World Financial Center is located on 225 Liberty Street on the corner of Liberty Street and South End Avenue. Completed in 1987, the building stands at 44 floors tall and features around 2,491,000 square feet in office space for lease. The building stands in the Financial District in close proximity to the red and yellow MTA subway lines as well as the World Trade Center PATH station. Hundreds of different restaurants also pepper the surrounding neighborhood. The edifice’s closeness to the other office buildings that surround the neighborhood make this space ideal for an organization needing proximity to partner firms or clients. The building was designed by Cesar Pelli & Associates in a Postmodern style architecture. It connects to the rest of the World Financial Center complex through a courtyard leading to the Winter Garden, a dramatic glass-and-steel public space with a 120-foot vaulted ceiling under which there is an assortment of trees and plants, including sixteen 12-meter palm trees from the Mojave Desert.


Financial District

Home to many of Manhattan’s major financial institutions, the aptly named Financial District is located towards the southern end of the island. Two of Manhattan’s major streets, Wall Street and Broad Street, can be found in the area. Some must-see places for businesses include the New York Stock Exchange and the Federal Reserve Bank. The South Street Seaport outdoor mall has a number of shops for employees to explore.  Furthermore, Stone Street, a pedestrian-only, cobblestone street is home to numerous restaurant and bar options.  When the weather permits, take advantage of the outdoor seating areas for optimal people-watching.  

Attractions in the area include The New York City Police Museum and the Museum of American Finance. Additionally, during times of celebration, the city comes alive for the ticker-tape parade whose route is known as the Canyon of Heroes.

For workers who put in long hours at the office and want to live nearby, the Financial District may be the perfect option for you. In terms of average rent for office space, you will be hard-pressed to beat the Financial District’s $53/sqft.  It’s no wonder companies from a number of industries have joined the likes of Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, and American Express as office neighbors in the Financial District.

Nearby Districts Include: Tribeca, and Chinatown.
