Check Out Corporate Suites’ New Plan

When Corporate Suites unveils its latest labyrinth of temporary offices at 1180 Avenue of the Americas in January, it will mark the workplace solutions company’s eighth location in Manhattan.
Despite a relative glut of so-called co-work spaces across the five boroughs, Corporate Suites’s principal, Hayim Grant, has managed to rise above his competition by scouting well-lit, expansive locations in easily accessible transit hubs across the borough. And the 23,165-square-foot floorplate on the eighth floor of 1180 Avenue of the Americas is no different, said Garett Varricchio, an in-house leasing agent for the building’s co-owner, Murray Hill Properties.
“We actually had a broker event here on the eighth floor this summer,” said Mr. Varricchio. “We met their broker, and a couple days later we got the offer.”
After the jump, Mr. Varricchio reviews Corporate Suites’s plans with The Commercial Observer last week and explains what drew the growing workplace solutions company to 1180 Avenue of the Americas.
