The Ford Motor Company Building is located on 555 West 57th Street, New York, NY 10019, between 56th Street and 57th Street. The structure was completed in 1923, tops out at 12 stories, reaches a height of 158 feet, and contains over 58,300 square feet of office space for rent. Because 555 W 57th St is a smaller structure, the size makes it better suited for smaller organizations that are not expecting too much near-term expansion. Smaller buildings are typically also easier to navigate and tenants often benefit from closer relationships with their landlords or building management, although they are often older in age. The Ford Motor Company Building has been renovated at numerous time throughout its tenure. 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. 555 West 57th Street 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 Ford Motor Company 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, orange, and blue subway lines. These transportation options help make the building easily accessible.

    Columbus Circle

    Located at the southwest corner of Central Park, the neighborhood of Columbus Circle spans a handful of blocks surrounding the traffic circle by the same name. A monument of Christopher Columbus stands at the center of the traffic circle, inspiring the name. Columbus Circle functions as the geographic center of New York City and is a heavily trafficked area that has undergone multiple renovations throughout the years to improve traffic around the circle.

    The most recent renovation occurred between 2003-2005 and included a new water fountain as well as the addition of plenty of benches and greenery. Columbus Circle offers a desirable Midtown West location near Central Park, the Upper West Side, Rockefeller Center, and Times Square at just-above-average Midtown prices.

    Columbus Circle Neighborhood & History

    Designed in 1857, Columbus Circle was initially a continuation of the vision for Central Park. The traffic circle faces the Merchant’s Gate entrance to Central Park on its northeast side. The installation of the Christopher Columbus statue 35 years later helped Columbus Circle establish a separate identity from Central Park.
