The Delmonico Plaza Building is located on 55 East 59th Street, New York, NY 10022, on 59th Street and Madison Avenue. The structure was completed in 1986, tops out at 24 stories, reaches a height of 317 feet, and contains over 551,000 square feet of office space for rent. Since 55 East 59th Street is a larger structure, it is well suited for organizations looking for premium commercial real estate and large blocks of contiguous office space. Many of the newer buildings that are springing up around Midtown and the Financial District have large vacancies that have yet to be filled. These kinds of spaces are ideal for large firms that are looking up to open a base of operations in New York City. The Delmonico Plaza Building has been renovated at numerous time throughout its long history. The improvements have served to improve the office space to modern standards as well as keep building lobby and infrastructure functional and up-to-date. 55 E 59th St is located in Midtown, which is Manhattan’s premier business district. Midtown Manhattan features a huge amount of commercial real estate and is one of the most densely populated pieces of land in the world. There are a huge number of skyscrapers, hotels, restaurants, retailers, bus stops, and train stations that saturate the neighborhood with high quality tenants and both native and tourist foot traffic. The result is a great selection of office space for tenants, and huge foot traffic numbers for retailers. The Delmonico Plaza Building is highly accessible thanks to New York City’s extensive bus and train network. The Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) features a huge bus network which make nearly all portions of the city accessible. In addition, the building lies in close proximity to the MTA’s yellow, green, and orange subway lines. These transportation options help make the building easily accessible.
The Upper East Side, comprising Lenox Hill, Carnegie Hill, and Yorkville, has a long history of affluence in New York City. Notable American families with homes here have included the Kennedys, Roosevelts, Rockefellers, and Carnegies.
Compared to the hustle and bustle of Manhattan neighborhoods further south, the Upper East Side moves at a slower, more relaxed pace. The large number of schools, playgrounds, and community centers make the neighborhood feel a bit more suburban. And of course, Central Park and Museum Mile are two of the most popular family destinations in all of the city.
The Upper East Side is also the scene of the newly opened Second Avenue Subway, much to the delight of residential and commercial tenants. The Q-line runs along Second Avenue from 72nd Street up to 96th Street, and has alleviated much of the pressure from the 4,5,6 lines.
Rents for commercial real estate spaces in the Upper East Side fall right at the city-wide average of $72/sqft. For this price you can join the midst of companies such as Dylan’s Candy Bar and Agata & Valentina.
