299 Park Avenue, New York, NY 10171 is located on the corner of 29th Street and Park Avenue. Completed in 1967, the building stands at 43 floors tall and features over 1,200,000 square feet in office space for rent, making it quite a sizable structure. Although an older building, the structure was recently renovated and now offers high quality office space and support. The structure sits in the heart of Midtown and subsequently benefits from some of New York’s best amenities. In addition to hundreds of restaurants in close proximity, 299 Park Avenue benefits from being close to green and blue MTA subway lines. 277 Park Avenue also stands in the heart of a central business district, making it ideal for organizations needing closeness to partner firms or clients. Such excellent placement adds a significant amount of value for the building’s tenants. For much of its history, the building housed Westvaco and was subsequently known as the Westvaco Building. Today, the company’s successor, MeadWestvaco, continues to use the building as a regional office. 299 Park is a large black skyscraper with alternating shiny and matte thin stainless steel mullions emphasizing its height.
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.
