Penn PlazaIn 2016 there is a substantial inventory of Class A office space available at 1 Penn Plaza, but 2 Penn Plaza remains 100% occupied. The buildings deliver the highest quality corporate headquarters environment in the area and provide direct access to the Penn Station transportation hub. Vornado Realty Trust, which owns and manages these and nearby buildings, is investing millions in upgrading the entire area. It recently announced an ambitious plan to physically connect 1 and 2 Penn Plaza which would facilitate Tenant mobility and create retail and amenities opportunities.
