One of the most desirable areas in Manhattan, Chelsea, is home to the impressive 242 West 30th St. The building, constructed in 1926, features 24/7 access, on-site security, and key-card access.
The Highline, an extremely popular attraction in the area, offers a beautiful walking path lined with lounge chairs, food carts perfect for lunch, and the occasional performer. Luckily, 242 West 30th Street is located just blocks away. However, your walks along the park may be counteracted by trips to some of New Yorks best restaurants, also located within a few blocks of 242 West 30th Street. Our favorites include ILILI for tapas-style Lebanese food, and Blossom for cleansing vegan treats. As with most spaces in Chelsea, transportation will not be an issue. Penn Station is located to the North and stations for the 1, 2, A, C, and E lines are never more than a few blocks away.

    Get to Know Midtown South

    The actual boundaries and character of Midtown South are debated. The Wall Street Journal notes that those interested in commercial property tend to see the area as covering a larger area than those interested in residential properties. To help you decide where you might be interested in pursuing office space, we have provided brief descriptions of some of Midtown South’s popular neighborhoods below.

    SoHo

    Soho, short for South of Houston Street, is an upscale neighborhood known for its style, luxury, art, and culture. It has an impressive collection of cast-iron buildings with large windows, fire escapes and wide open spaces. Companies such as FourSquare, WeWork Labs, and Warby Parker work there.

    Chelsea

    Chelsea manages to fit 200 art galleries, nearly 2,000 food and drink options, and a dizzying array of boutiques and shops all in one square mile. Known as one of the most pedestrian-friendly areas of NYC, Chelsea offers quick access to the High Line and Chelsea Piers. Working there means working alongside Google, Twitter, Youtube, Uber, Netflix, and Venmo.

    Greenwich Village

    Greenwich Village, nicknamed The Village or West Village, is the NYC artists’ haven and the Bohemian capital. The Village is home to the historic Washington Square Park and various Off-Broadway and Off-Off Broadways. It used to be a rural settlement, so its streets have names instead of numbers, which is unusual for NYC. J. Crew, Forbes, and Outbrain all work there.

    Hudson Square

    Hudson Square combines the elegance of Tribeca and the creativity of SoHo and serves as a hub for advertising, media, and tech. Most of the office space (70 percent) is Class A. A 2013 rezoning began a project to add 165,000 square feet of office space, and this is still underway. Working here means working beside Getty Images, Weiden + Kennedy, DigitalOcean, Two Sigma, and Havas Media.

    Gramercy Park

    Gramercy Park is a quiet district filled with Victorian charm and beautiful foliage. Currently, about 21.5 million square feet of office space are in the area with more than 100,000 under construction. Those looking for a centrally located neighborhood with a laid back environment will love Gramercy. Notable tenants include Perry Branding Group, Digital Pulp, and Gotham Ghostwriters.
