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.

    Park Avenue Office Space | Lease Data & Trends

    Park Avenue office space doesn’t come at a discount. Between the premium tenants pay for an address on one of the most famous streets in America and the already higher than average prices in Midtown for Class A office space, Park Avenue is primarily home to hedge funds, banks, consulting firms, law firms, and insurance companies. The average Park Avenue office space rents for $90 per square foot. All inventory on Park Avenue is considered Class A office space.

    For more affordable options that are still on the east side, consider the Upper East Side or Murray Hill. Budget-strapped companies will struggle to find options on Park Avenue, Madison Avenue, and in the Plaza District.

    Get to Know Park Avenue

    Park Avenue is known for housing a number of Fortune 500 companies and other businesses. The following companies are headquartered or have some offices located in the neighborhood: Mutual of America, Hachette Book Group, British Airways, Major League Baseball, Maserati, and The National Football League.

    Because Park Avenue has some of the nation’s most expensive real estate, it’s no surprise that so many CEOs and billionaires choose to live there. 740 Park Avenue, known as one of NYC’s “Towers of Power,” will only consider applicants who have a net worth of at least $100 million. Current resident Stephen Schwarzman, Blackstone founder, lives in the triplex once owned by John D. Rockefeller. Hedge fund manager David Ganek owns a duplex in 740 Park Avenue that’s now worth $32.5 million. Park Avenue is also home to 432 Park, which is the best-selling building ever in NYC; it’s already closed sales for more than $2 billion.

    Though Park Avenue isn’t really a tourist destination, it is one of the best-looking boulevards in New York City. That’s because the Fund for Park Avenue provides funding for upkeep and maintains the numerous flower boxes that decorate the median between the north and south traffic. The area does feature some interesting architecture, including the Medieval Gothic designed Seventh Regiment Armory that’s known for its picturesque interior. Other landmarks of note include Ritz Tower, the Helmsley Building, St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church, the Italian Cultural Institute of New York, Harold Pratt House, and Perishing Square Building.

    Park Avenue served as a filming location in many well-known movies, the Park Avenue Viaduct in particular.  For example, Will Smith jumps off the Viaduct to chase a criminal in Men in Black. In I Am Legend, Will Smith is cornered by a zombie on the Viaduct. The final showdown in The Avengers also takes place on the Viaduct.
