Inspiration for an Office Revival at 145 East 57th Street



Manhattan’s 57th Street has evolved into a haven for the one percent. Appropriately known as Billionaire’s Row, the blocks south of Central Park feature some of the most luxurious shopping and the finest residential real estate in the world. As the corridor’s retail and residential offerings grow, the commercial office market is taking a page from its residential counterpart. ABS Partners Real Estate is at the forefront of this changing office market, where the firm is transforming 145 East 57th Street, a 12-story prewar office building. The firm’s goal is to provide tenants with a modern, sophisticated office space inspired by and fitting in with the surrounding neighborhood and its ultra-luxe residential properties.

At 145 East 57th Street, ABS Partners is blending the elegance of interior residential designs with the functionality of efficiently planned, full-floor office space, resulting in a professional, top-of-the-line office environment with finishes that are unmatched in the area. As the firm builds out each floor to create turn-key, pre-built “workstyle” office spaces, the residential inspiration within the design is apparent. All pantries are equipped with kitchens that include Miele and Sub Zero appliances, like a Miele Pureline speed oven and microwave, and Grohe sink fixtures that provide tenants with still or sparkling water. A center island adds to the home-like atmosphere, providing a break-out work space or dining area for employees and guests. In addition to the fully equipped pantries and modern technology, tenants also have tenant-controlled HVAC and private restrooms.

“The neighborhood has evolved tremendously over the past few years; the residential offerings are unmatched and the retail spaces are some of the most expensive and sought-after in the city. At 145 East 57th Street, we wanted to curate a property that fit into this niche and provide tenants with a value unique to the the Plaza District,” said John Brod, a partner at ABS Partners Real Estate. “At 145 East 57th Street, we are building modern and efficient “workstyle” open spaces with full-floor identities for businesses. The building features floors with four sides of windows, providing an abundance of natural light, technological advancements, like fiber optic connectivity and a key-card security system, and three passenger elevators, which adds to the efficient and agile environment we are creating for tenants.”

In addition to modern features and finishes, like 12-foot ceiling heights and polished concrete floors, tenants at 145 East 57th Street can customize a pre-built space to include more private office spaces, large conference rooms or glass-enclosed break out rooms. This flexibility allows a company to build a space that best fits their business needs and is attracting hedge funds, foundations, private equity firms and family offices.

Current availabilities include pre-built full floors that range in size from 4,250 square feet to 5,336 square feet. The newly added penthouse floor at 145 East 57th Street is also available for lease and features 2,650 square feet of space, floor-to-ceiling windows and an expansive private outdoor deck.
