The BEST NYC Neighborhood to Rent Office Space: Tribeca, New York.

1. Tribeca

With its historic buildings and hip vibe, Tribeca is a great place to rent an office. Located in Lower Manhattan, Tribeca is easily accessible by public transit – meaning your employees and clients won’t have to scramble for a cab. The area is also home to some of New York’s finest eateries and trendy boutiques, making this a truly desirable place to work.

Notable businesses that have made their home in Tribeca include Citigroup, Warby Parker, Edelman, and Two Sigma Investments, among many others.

As one of the most desirable locations in the city, the cost of space in Tribeca is at a premium — on average it costs $87 per square foot to rent in this neighborhood.

Much of Tribeca contains designated historic districts, protected by the state of New York. This means there are a limited number of class A office space buildings in the area — our office space at 40 Worth Street happens to be one of them.

One of the best areas to rent office space in New York City - Soho.

2. Soho

Right next door to Tribeca is Soho. This is another area well-known for its elegant architecture, fashion-forward vibe, and trend-setting restaurants. Like Tribeca, Soho is also easily accessible by subway.

With the market a little less competitive than neighboring Tribeca, average asking rent in Soho is $77 per square foot. There’s also a boom in office space in the area, making it easy for businesses of all sizes to find a place to call home.

Our offices at 40 Worth Street sits at the corner of Church Street and West Broadway. The center comprises an entire block, which comprises the start of Soho, as well as Tribeca.

Columbus Circle is one of the top NYC neighborhoods to rent office space in.

3. Columbus Circle

At the southwest corner of Central Park, Columbus Circle is located in the heart of New York City and is the gateway to the Columbus Circle. Steps from Carnegie Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center, and The Shops at Columbus Circle, this neighborhood has much to offer.

The neighborhood is easily accessible by public transit, and there’s also access via the West Side Highway, which makes this a great spot for commuters from Westchester, Connecticut, and New Jersey.

The area is an established business hub, with many banks and stockbrokers operating in the area. Some well-known companies in this neighborhood include Penguin Random House, Hearst Media, and Time-Warner AOL.

Despite its prestigious location, average office rent in Columbus Circle is not much higher than the New York City average, at $78 per square foot for Class A properties.

The Columbus Circle was voted as one of the top NYC neighborhoods to work and rent office space.

4. The Columbus Circle
