Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) announces a 14,078-square-foot office lease on behalf of national aviation accident attorneys, Kreindler & Kreindler LLP. The new and expansive office space, which features modern design finishes, is located on the 28th floor at 485 Lexington Avenue. NKF’s Vice Chairman Brian Goldman and Associate Cooper Weisman represented Kreindler & Kreindler LLP in the transaction.
Situated on a full blockfront along Lexington Avenue, 485 Lexington Avenue stands 32 stories above 46th and 47th Streets. The property is located steps away from the newly-created north entrance to Grand Central Terminal and provides unparalleled access to a vast array of subway, bus and train lines. The building’s large, efficient base floors are complemented by boutique tower floors that offer dramatic views of the Manhattan skyline. 485 Lexington also features an abundance of amenities, including extended HVAC hours and a 100-car on-site parking garage. New retail at the building includes Bright Horizons, Gregory’s Coffee and Soul Cycle, in addition to the neighborhood’s growing dining and shopping options.
485 Lexington was renovated thoroughly in 2007 by Vidaris, Inc., bringing the building and its interiors into the 21st century. An elegant lobby references the exterior’s steel and glass aesthetic, giving the entrance a sense of airiness, which matches the structure’s handsome overall proportions. Anchoring its Midtown block, 485 Lexington is a subtle classic turned confidently contemporary.
