We are very happy to announce we have signed our second New York venue with Boston Properties (NYSE: BXP) for 30,000 sq ft on the 14th floor at 601 Lexington Avenue, a premier, 59-story office tower in midtown Manhattan, NY. The deal further consolidates our entry into the New York market, after announcing 45,000 sq ft at Stawski Partners 360 Madison in May.
Our newest space which has operated as an in-house conference centre for Citi, will be remodeled by our specialist design team as part of our vision to offer New York’s meeting planners high quality conference and events space with full service hospitality. The 30,000-square-foot venue, which will have a separate address and entrance at 153 East 53rd Street will initially be solely available to a dedicated client, with plans to bring the venue to the broader market in early 2021.
601 Lexington Avenue is located in the heart of Midtown Manhattan at East 53rd Street and Lexington Avenue and is part of Boston Properties 4.5 million sq ft Midtown Campus. This 1.6 million sq ft building has onsite fitness, shopping, restaurants and fast casual eateries. Our newest venue also provides direct access to New York City and its boroughs through its prime location atop a major subway station.
“We wanted a world class conference brand for our building and I was impressed with their London operation during my visit,” commented John Powers, Boston Properties’ Executive Vice President, New York Region. “etc.venues provided us with a helpful short term solution for an existing tenant at 599 Lexington Avenue as they undergo a comprehensive modernisation of their workplace. We continue to invest in creating a full service hospitality experience for our customers and see the arrival of etc.venues as an important addition to the campus.”
601 Lexington Avenue will be available from March, 2021. It’ll be worth waiting for.
