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.

    What Our Brokers Say About Midtown East Office Space

    The borough of Manhattan south of Central Park is traditionally divided into Midtown, Midtown South, and Lower Manhattan. Midtown East is the Eastern half of Midtown that is bordered by Fifth Avenue to the west, the East River to the east, 59th St. to the north, and 42nd Street to the south. The area is home to the Chrysler Building, Rockefeller Center, and the United Nations Headquarters, and visitors will notice a lot of areas that look familiar because they’ve appeared on postcards and in TV shows.

    Midtown East is primarily a business district and is relatively quiet during the evenings. Traveling around the area and getting to and from nearby districts is easy, especially with the convenient juxtaposition of Grand Central Station, which is not only one of the biggest hubs for public transportation in NYC but also a historic landmark. Nearby subway lines include: 4, 5, 6, N, Q, R, B, D, F, M, E, and 7. If visiting business partners need a place to stay, book rooms in The Langham, The Bernic Hotel, Fitzpatrick Grand Central, or Pod 39.
