Choosing the Right Office Space in Midtown Manhattan

Choosing the Right Office Space in Midtown Manhattan

The phrase “dress for success” doesn’t only apply to your wardrobe.  All global and local businesses benefit from the prestige that comes with prominent, upscale NYC office space in at a renowned address.  For this, you can’t beat either the location or reputation that comes with basing your company in Midtown Manhattan.

Manhattan has the distinction of being one of the world’s foremost capitals for financial services.  Midtown Manhattan sits within easy reach of both professional amenities and the beating heart of the city’s best retail space and entertainment.  When you transmit your v-card with a Midtown Manhattan address on it, use your Midtown office location on your Website under “Contact Us”, have an NYC live receptionist and virtual assistant on location and on-call, or send an e-mail with your address in the signature, you’re putting your best foot forward.

For some companies, very inexpensive  virtual office space in Manhattan provides the conveniences they need while adding polish to their already impressive public face. Other companies require more physical space at an NYC office location that affords access to a suite of professional business services. Traditional office space leases are obsolete – a flexible model is much cheaper all-in for most companies.  Choosing the location that best fits your occupancy needs plays a large part in your company’s success.

Grand Central Office Space

One of the greatest benefits to office space in Midtown Manhattan is convenient access to transportation.  Grand Central Terminal is the beating heart of New York City’s commuter services. Within a short distance of this hub, you’ll find access to all NYC subway lines, commuter trains and buses. Grand Central office space also puts you (and your clients!) in close proximity to a large number of businesses, as well as shopping and dining opportunities.

NYC’s Graybar and Commerce Buildings: Commuting Made Easy

Offices within NYC’s desirable Graybar Building — located at Grand Central Terminal itself — provide the easiest access to all of New York’s transportation options. These turn-key offices come equipped with enterprise grade managed internet bandwidth, plug-and-play technology, and available meeting rooms and day offices for rent.

In close proximity to Grand Central Terminal are offices in the Commerce Building.  A short walk from NYC’s transportation lines, these offices take the trouble out of getting to work each day – especially during rainy or snowy weather.  They provide clients with hourly conference rooms for use and an on-site staff to ensure smooth operations.  Internet and NYC VOIP technology are ready to use.

The Midtown East Building: High-Floor Success

Architecture can make a profound statement, and a dramatic office space will leave a lingering impression on your clients. The classic edifice of our Midtown East location can help to make your workspace unforgettable. Within, you’ll find renovated public areas and pre-configured flexible offices you can settle into without hassle.manhattan office space midtown

You’ll find scalable spaces and state-of-the-art internet and telecommunications systems, as well as executive concierge services, in the Class A  Plaza District’s ‘Love’ Building.  Located in the center of Midtown, these fully-outfitted business center offices give you easy access to both east and west sides and are a convenient distance from major subway lines.

Why Share an Office?

In the business world, times are changing. What we often envision as a traditional workplace setting doesn’t necessarily adhere to the needs and desires of a 21st century enterprise. Modern offices are built on flexibility – shared office space is a classic example of a more versatile workplace setting that has been designed to reflect contemporary needs. There are many good reasons to share an office. And fortunately, many of these relate to enabling growth.

Sharing Office Space While You Grow

To understand the benefits of sharing office space, it’s important to understand exactly what a shared office space is. In a shared format, your business has its own, fully secure office space. Certain public areas of the office space – such as the lobby, kitchen and other social areas – are “shared” with other businesses. Additionally, many office servicesare shared, such as fully prebuilt space, available furniture, redundant, secure, stable and dedicated Internet access, Manhattan meeting rooms for rent and live receptionists.

This shared format allows you to provide a safe and stable environment for your employees while limiting the investment that has to be made in providing amenities.The costs for non-core elements of your office are shared with other adjacent businesses. As a result, the financial impact of these elements on your business is reduced. The result is that more of your capital can be invested where it ought to be – in growing your company.

Private But Social

When you share an office space in a class A office location, you’re be able to enjoy the privacy that comes from having dedicated office space for your company. But you also have an opportunity to network with other businesses that share common spaces with you. Sharing office space allows you to engage other business professionals in an amicable, well-appointed and neutral environment that is well-suited for the free-flow of ideas. Whether this means the development of new partnerships or simply exchanging news with those who work in a complementary industry, this potential for collaboration is unique to a shared office format.

Shared Office Space in NYC

The shared office space model is particularly desirable in NYC, a prestigious and bustling business environment where space is at a premium. By sharing an office space in NYC, you can significantly lower your overhead while still having access to private meeting rooms and being able to provide a safe and modern work environment for your employees.

At NYC Office Suites, we offer shared office space at four locations in NYC. All of these Class A office buildings are in Midtown Manhattan and outfitted with both the latest office technology and security features. Get in touch with us online today or call  1-800-346-3968 to find out more about our offerings and lease a shared office space or virtual office.

Finding New York City Meeting Space on the Fly

It’s difficult to book a New York City meeting space and set up your winning business presentations well in advance of your needs. Even if you book a Class A NYC meeting room a month in advance, you may encounter a cancellation or rescheduling. You may even, while walking around Midtown Manhattan, encounter a few colleagues, promising potential hires, or a client prospect or two and want to have private meetings on demand. Where can you find interview or conference rooms in NYC “on the fly,” what advantages do they offer?

Conference Rooms in NYC Convey Professionalism

You want to avoid a long and expensive delay by looking for meeting space in inappropriate places. We’ve seen some “interesting” spaces out there, including warehouses and barber shops! You also want to avoid discussing, in loud voices, what are important and sensitive details at crowded coffee shops or other restaurant venues. You could quickly tidy up your living room for a conference room lounge, but in many cases a home meeting raises more than a few questions about your confidence in your value proposition.

Quality Midtown New York City meeting spaces are available that are inexpensive, professional, convenient and on-demand. That‘s because reputable Manhattan Office Business Centers maintain high quality, clean, well-lit, highly staffed, furnished, and equipped space for use by their full time clients. And when their clients are not using the shared office and conference room space, they rent it out to outside business professionals.

When booking NYC meeting rooms, here are some items to consider:

  • Time, date and length of Midtown meeting: Often, after-hours meetings are quite a bit more expensive for outside clients due to the need to pay overtime rates to the staff.
  • Size of meeting: Larger meetings should require a bigger outlay. Please be sure to ask about the room size, the number of people who can sit at the table, and the number of people who can sit at the table plus the number of people who can sit along the sides (if that is a possibility). Also note that for more intimate meetings, for say 3 people, you may be able to save a lot of money by simply booking a day office for the day.
  • Equipment included: If there is no large flatscreen, you may ask about or bring a projector. Also, make sure the phone type you need is included, and that there are no charges for domestic calling.
  • Catering needs: In New York City, there is no need to worry about where you are going to get food. Food vendors are everywhere. However, you will want to make sure it’s OK to bring food up to your conference room space if necessary.
  • Pictures: Make sure you can get a picture of the exact conference room, and pre-tour it if possible.

Advantages of NYC Meeting Rooms vs. a Hotel

Should you go with a hotel? Hotels seem like a good choice for companies who have taken down a block of rooms in that venue, but in fact your productivity will improve by meeting in the bona-fide business setting enjoyed at a Class A flexible office space location. Additionally, hotels also upcharge significantly for catering and other services that would have been included at your shared office meeting room.

Booking a Class A Conference Room Can Include Increased Value

You may be introduced to a serviced office space with premium meeting rooms through a booking service, but you will find it better to “go direct” once you are comfortable and find yourself having meetings. A virtual office program in a Class A Midtown Office Business Center location is one way to reduce your costs. For frequent Midtown meeting space users, a discount starting at 50% for fully equipped meeting rooms can be achieved in some cases, and you can add a la carte business services such as an NYC mailing address, New York live receptionist and Manhattan virtual assistant services at a very low cost. You will also want to make sure that your virtual office and virtual meeting space provider has a mobile-enabled portal to use for bookings.

At NYC Office Suites, we offer a number of NYC meeting room options. To find out more and book a space, get in touch with us online or by phone at 1-800-346-3968.
