Located between Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue, the property is neighbors with Rockefeller Center, Grand Central Station, Bryant Park, the Midtown Office Core, and shopping along Fifth and Madison Avenues.

Home to the Mercantile Library since 1932, the building will be delviered vacant and is a perfect opportunity for user groups, value-add investors, and hotel developers alike. With 18,000 SF of usable space in arguably NYC’s most prestigous locaton, 17 East 47th Street would serve as an ideal home to non-profit and cultural insitutions.

The generous zoning (FAR of 15.0) and excess air rights (~20,485) also presents a significant opportunity for re-development as a boutique office or hotel project. In total, there are over 38,000 buildable square feet available to create a new project servicing Midotwn’s core office market and its tenants.
