Soaring 1,454 feet above Midtown Manhattan, the Empire State Building skyscraper is the World’s Most Famous Building.
With new investments in energy-efficiency, building-wide infrastructure upgrades, public areas and amenities in the final stages the Empire State Building attracts office tenants in a diverse array of industries from around the world including Shutterstock, Coty, JCDecaux, Bulova, LinkedIn, HNTB, Agoda (Priceline), Human Rights Watch, Global Brands Group, Palo Alto Networks, Skanska, and World Monument Fund.
Tenants at the Empire State Building enjoy the benefits of The Urban Campus which continues to expand. New components of The Urban Campus include a 15,000-square-foot, tenant-only fitness center; a tenant-only conference center; STATE Grill and Bar, with private executive dining and event space and Tacombi; 8 in-building dining options; and a full complement of tenant services.
50,000 sq.ft. of prime multi-level retail space is available for lease on the 34th Street side of the property. The space is dividable into smaller units and located next to the new 34th Street dedicated Observatory entrance.
The Empire State Building stood as the world's tallest building for nearly 40 years until the completion of the World Trade Center's North Tower in Lower Manhattan in late 1970. Following the September 11 attacks in 2001, it was again the tallest building in New York until the new One World Trade Center was completed in April 2012.
The Empire State Building also has taken a leading role in sustainability, partnering with the Clinton Climate Initiative, Rocky Mountain Institute, Johnson Controls, and JLL to develop an innovative process for a comprehensive energy efficiency retrofit program that will reduce the building’s total energy consumption by 50% and that has led the building to receive an Energy Star rating of 86, placing it in the top 20% in energy efficiency among all buildings measured. Features of the restoration include the Art Deco masterpiece lobby and new Otis Destination Dispatch elevators.
Located in the center of Manhattan, the Empire State Building is central to Penn Station, Port Authority Bus Terminal, PATH, Grand Central Terminal and steps from 17 subway lines.
