Located in the desirable Central Park South neighborhood, 680 5th Avenue features newly renovated common spaces, a web-based visitor management and security system, and an abundance of natural light. The building, which is also known as the Canada House, was constructed in 1957 and stands an impressive 27 stories high.As the name of its home neighborhood suggests, 680 5th Avenue sits just south of Central Park. The area is home to landmarks such as the New York City Center for Performing Arts, Carnegie Hall, and Rockefeller Center. Food options are very flexible in terms of budget with Carnegie Deli and Halal Guys food cart as cheap options, and Pure Thai and Le Bernardin for sit down meals. After a long day at the office, walk a few blocks north to wander through Central Park. The long, winding paths and tall trees offer a quiet sanctuary from city life.



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.

Nearby Districts Include: The Garment District, the Upper West Side, and the Upper East Side
