Amenities include floorplans ranging from 2,000 to 12,000 square feet, glass storefronts, granite façade and a sleek lobby covered in limestone and stainless steel.
The building is located in Manhattan’s Garment District and offers views of Bryant Park. It is also minutes away from retailers, restaurants, coffee shops, hotels and banks.
