Situated in the heart of Chelsea, 249 West 17th Street, which was constructed in 1902, features fiber internet, exceptional column spacing, and available basement levels.
One of the most popular attractions in the area, the High Line, offers a beautiful walking path lined with lounge chairs, food carts perfect for lunch, and the occasional performer, and 249 West 17th Streetis located just blocks away. Unfortunately, however, all the walking might be counteracted by meals at some of New Yorks best restaurants, which also call the area home. Some of 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.

    Neighborhood

    Chelsea

    Chelsea is well-known by locals and tourists alike for its expressive and diverse culture. With over 200 art galleries, nearly 2,000 options for food and drink, and an array of both boutiques and big chains for shopping โ€” all in under one square mile โ€” thereโ€™s something to satisfy every taste in Chelsea.

    Standout attractions include Chelsea Market, which attracts over 6 million visitors each year and was bought by Googleโ€™s parent company Alphabet Inc in early 2018, and the High Line, a 1.45-mile urban oasis. Both destinations have played significant roles in the revitalized growth of Chelsea.

    Chelsea Office Space | Lease Data & Trends

    Chelsea is an ideal location for any business seeking to infuse their products and office spaces with creativity. The established arts scene along with SUNYโ€™s Fashion Institute of Technology attract an innovative and educated crowd with an average age of 25-40. Businesses have their pick of smaller offices in co-working spaces to sprawling floors in brick and beam buildings. The average asking rent for Chelsea office space hovers just above $59.00 per square foot, relative to the average Midtown price of $76.94 โ€” another reason the neighborhood is so attractive to companies of all shapes and sizes.

    What Our Brokers Say about Chelsea Office Space

    While Chelsea has a smaller tech presence compared to the neighboring Flatiron District, the notable presence of Google and Twitter โ€” along with the corporate offices of YouTube, Venmo, Uber, and Food52 โ€” make excellent company for those looking to make the move. One of the most recent companies to move to Chelsea is Netflix, who signed an 11,592 square foot sublease for their first New York office space in the fall of 2017.

    The median residential rent is considered one of the highest in Manhattan, but even employees living outside NYC have convenient access to the district via Penn Station and will find commuting to be an appealing option. Once in Chelsea, most everyday needs are capable of being met within a five-minute walk. In addition to the variety of foods Chelsea Market has to offer, our team recommends Sweets by CHLOE, The Donut Pub, Momofuku Noodle Bar, Chelsea Brewing Pub, La Sirena, Rocking Horse Cafe, Sullivan Street Bakery, Salinas, and The Red Cat. For more info on where to eat and drink in the neighborhood, check out our Chelsea Lunch and Coffee Guides.

    Popular office buildings in Chelsea include 210 11th Avenue, 531 West 25th Street, 545 West 25th Street, and The Tate at 535 West 24th Street.

    Neighborhood History

    Chelsea is one of the few Manhattan districts still named after the original estate, which grew into a hub for manufacturing companies. Arguably the most famous company was Nabisco, which was redeveloped into the Chelsea Market in 1998.

    Industrialization in the 1850s took advantage of access to the Hudson River piers and led to the construction of numerous warehouses, factories, lumberyards, breweries, and tenements. Many of these original buildings have been redeveloped for new businesses and apartments. The Chelsea Historic District was designated in 1971 and last expanded in 1982.

    Chelsea continues to evolve with the Hudson Yards Redevelopment Project. With projected completion in 2024, soon Chelsea will benefit from 16 skyscrapers containing more than 12,700,000 square feet of new office, residential, and retail space. The project has already contributed to increased profits for many businesses in the area.

    Reimagine Your Workspace

    Chelsea has an abundance of inspiring office spaces that showcase endless possibilities for remodeling a workspace. In 2011, a 100,000 square foot warehouse building was purchased by British theater company Punchdrunk to create a five-story performance venue โ€œThe McKittrick Hotel,โ€ now home to the immersive, site-specific theatrical production Sleep No More, a staple of Chelseaโ€™s entertainment scene. Slightly less elaborate, Googleโ€™s Chelsea office is filled with NYC-themed rooms and provides access to floors with ladders as well as elevators, the startup Outbrain is praised for its central conference room โ€œThe Fishbowl,โ€ and YouTube has permanent production sets available to their creators.

    Getting Around the Neighborhood

    Chelsea is listed among the top 20 most walkable areas in NYC. Walkers have easy access to the High Line and Chelsea Piers, although with the influx of tourists many locals caution against riding a bike along the piers. Bikers will still find incredible ease in getting around Chelsea and have access to bike sharing with CitiBike.

    Commuters have no shortage of options to get to work. In addition to commuting through Penn Station, employees can take the A, C, and E trains to Eighth Avenue or F and M trains to Sixth Avenue. Chelsea is accessible by bus routes ย M7, M10, M11, M12, M14, and M23. Chelsea houses the main entrance to the 34th Street/Hudson Yards station for the 7 train as well as stops for the 1 and 2 trains.

    Nearby neighborhoods include: Flatiron District, Garment, Meatpacking, Tribeca, and Greenwich Village
