WASHINGTON--()--Carr Workplaces, a national provider of flexible workplace solutions and executive suites, announced that it opened a new business center yesterday, March 18, in the Plaza District in Midtown Manhattan at 745 Fifth Ave. With this prestigious address in a landmark building, the center will cater to professionals with high-end client bases. Despite the premium location, Carr Workplaces’ model provides savings of 30 percent compared with conventional real estate, by eliminating start-up and infrastructure costs. Prospective and signed clients represent the legal and financial sectors, international businesses, fashion and other creative industries.
“The dynamic location and Carr Workplaces’ well-regarded professionalism are appealing to a range of businesses and professionals”
These executive offices are designed to meet the needs of traditional and modern small businesses, entrepreneurs and independent professionals in Midtown Manhattan. The second Carr Workplaces center in New York City, 745 Fifth Ave. is evidence of the growing national trend toward flexible, fully-integrated office solutions.
This Midtown Manhattan center is in a historic building designed by Buchman & Kahn, architects of some of the city’s most important Art Deco buildings. On the southeast corner of Central Park, at East 58th St., it features panoramic park views. Located along Fifth Ave., just south of the Upper East Side residential district, the flexible offices are within walking distance to the Museum Mile, Central Park Zoo, and many specialty shops, restaurants and hotels.
Located on the fifth floor, the center is designed to feel modern, open and energizing. It’s approximately 27,000 square feet, with 68 offices, two conference rooms and one training room.
"I fell in love with this business center. The timeless elegance of the Deco facade, its superb location with such deeply inspiring views, and Carr Workplace's gracious, polished and highly supportive staff made my decision and the leasing process effortless,” said Kimberly V. Strauss, philanthropist and private capitalist. “I look forward to Carr Workplaces’ plans for a bright, contemporary design, and their vision for a caring and social culture. I am thrilled," said Ms. Strauss, who has signed a multi-year lease at 745 Fifth Ave., from where she plans to launch her private fashion label.
Make-A-Wish Foundation is a client at Carr Workplaces’ 200 Park Ave. business center. “We have found this office center format to be ideal for our needs in Manhattan, and the Carr Workplaces’ business model is exceptional,” said Pat Clemency, president and CEO, Make-A-Wish Metro New York and Western New York. “Not only does it provide wonderful state-of-the-art facilities, but Carr Workplaces is deeply invested in the success of their clients. The office location is perfect, and their professional staff could not be more customer-oriented,” said Clemency.
“Interest in the new executive offices center has already exceeded our expectations,” said Sally Mohr, general manager for 745 Fifth Ave. “The dynamic location and Carr Workplaces’ well-regarded professionalism are appealing to a range of businesses and professionals,” said Ms. Mohr.
The serviced offices firm will host regular networking events at the new center.
Carr Workplaces’ first Manhattan business center opened in January 2012, above Grand Central Terminal at 200 Park Ave., also known as the MetLife Building.
Carr Workplaces offers fully-equipped meeting rooms, training rooms, and conference rooms, as well as flexible terms for co-working space, virtual offices, touchdown stations and part-time solutions available by the hour, week, month or year, in sizes ranging from individual offices to 100 person workgroups.
