The Penthouse of 623 Fifth Avenue is an absolute must see for the fund manager that wants to be on top of the world.  Formerly MERILL LYNCH’s executive entertaining and conferencing space, this suite is perhaps the most lavish 7,449 sf of hedge fund trading office space on the market. 

The penthouse office space features two insanely large useable terraces, floor to ceiling windows, raised trading floors and panoramic views of the city.  With only 4 small columns along the window line, this space extremely efficient for trading operations.   Measuring a mere 7,449 square feet, this is a unique opportunity for a relatively small fund to make a VERY LARGE STATEMENT.  Asking rent is approximately $120 per square foot and the landlord will either salvage the current installation or demolish and build-to-suit an incoming tenant’s needs.       

Your wife and kids will love the space as well!  The building is directly above Saks Fifth Avenue and features dead center views of Rockefeller Center and the tree lighting ceremony.
