Empire State Building architecture & Office Design 

empires state building officeSoaring 1,454 feet over midtown Manhattan, the Empire State Building is a center core office building which means that the elevators, stairs and mechanical systems are in the middle of each floor. As a result there are windows on four sides providing excellent light and views in both open collaborative work environments and more traditional  layouts with perimeter offices








The Empire State Building offers intelligently designed fully constructed office suites that are ready for immediate occupancy. All suites feature interior finishes that exceed those found in most other Class A buildings. Included are high ceilings (finished or open), upgraded lighting fixtures, wood and glass fronted offices, and contemporary pantries outfitted with Energy Star- rated stainless steel appliances. 







 There is a large inventory of offices available for lease ranging from 2,800 rentable square feet (RSF) up to full tower floors of 26,000 RSF. A small sample of office suites is shown below. (Note: Furniture is not included.)
