Overview
The Farley Building, the former 1912 James A. Farley Post Office, is undergoing a complete transformation to become New York City's best-in-class creative office hub. This adaptive reuse of an iconic civic building designed by McKim, Mead and White, famed architects of original Penn Station, will feature 740,000 square feet of office space, 120,000 square feet of curated retail and new majestic train hall. This horizontal campus is located in the center of New York's Midtown West submarket on top of the busiest transportation hub in the country with nearly every NYC subway line, Amtrak, LIRR and NJ Transit directly accessible from the building. Delivering in 2020, the Farley Building will feature large, open floorplates to foster collaboration and innovation, slab heights of over 17 feet, 40' x 32' column spacing, multiple office lobbies, and additional private entries and brand experiences fo our tenants. The fifth floor will contain nearly 70,000 square feet of outdoor landscaped park space to insire the building's tenants to interact with nature and to encourage movement, wellness and fitness. In addition, a 6,000 square foot, column-free glass pavilion is being constructed on the fifth floor which will contain 25 foot ceilings and glass walls that open to the building's outdoor green space.
