New York City Office Space with Skylights, Vaulted Ceilings and Terrace

We pride ourselves on knowing about the best available Hedge Fund Office Space, even before it hits the market.  Accordingly, we are pleased to bring you a brand new DUPLEX PENTHOUSE SUBLEASE that is about to hit the market at 597 Fifth Avenue (at 48th Street), also known as “The Scribner Building”.

Built in 1912, this building was once home to the Scribner Book Store and Publishing Company.  However, over the past 100 years, the asset has become home to a potpourri of tenants, including boutique financial companies.  The top floor duplex penthouse is currently occupied by a hedge fund that is looking to sublease this truly unique space.

Measuring just under 8,300 rentable square feet combined, the 12th and penthouse floors are sites to see.  The building’s elevators open to a welcoming reception area, which is illuminated by vaulted ceilings and skylights.  Complimented by extra large windows, full height glass and a primarily open floorplan, the floor receives a tremendous amount of natural light.  Built with several offices, 2 conference rooms, pantry, executive bathroom (with shower), and open area, this space is perfect for just about any hedge fund or trading firm.   For the outdoor lovers (and smokers), the penthouse conference room opens to a useable terrace and outdoor area.  Although most would assume that the price would be outrageous, the sublandlord is only asking in the high $50’s per square foot (Click here for the flyer with more information & pictures).  Looking for another subleaseClick here for our FREE office space search.
