New York, NY (PressExposure) January 22, 2014 -- Virgo Business Centers will open a 40,000 serviced office space at 1345 Avenue of the Americas. The new location will open in February and be Virgo's sixth Manhattan office space. Virgo has received several inquiries about office space on the West Side and the new space, sub-leased from AllianceBernstien, is Virgo's answer.
1345 Avenue of the Americas join's Virgo's five other Manhattan locations, at 350 Fifth Avenue, 304 Park Avenue South, 380 Lexington Avenue, 575 Lexington Avenue and 225 West 34th Street. In total, Virgo has 180,000 square feet of serviced office space through out Manhattan. According to Virgo CEO Sarah Klein, Virgo has been looking for a West Side location and is delighted with the deal. ""Sixth Avenue is a very corporate environment, and we've been getting a lot of calls from people asking about something there," Klein said. "And 1345 is a beautiful building."
Like all Virgo locations, the Avenue of the America's office will offer short term office rentals, virtual offices, meeting rooms for rent by the day or the hour, and many other services. Clients of Virgo Business Centers receive professional furnished offices in a managed office space. Clients who rent space in the new location will have access to staffed reception area, private washrooms, fully stocked kitchen/pantry, and more.
Virgo moved into the new space on January 1, and expect the area to need minimal improvements. "The space is built out currently," Scott. Bogetti, one of the brokers representing Virgo in the deal, said. Any "upgrades will not take that much time."
The new location will include 115 offices, including executive offices and team rooms. A lounge area, copy/fax center, private bathrooms, and kitchen/pantry will also be part of the space, and available to Virgo clients. Shared office space has been increasing in popularity, making shared office space providers some of New York City's fastest-growing tenants. "The growth has obviously been big," Klein said of the shared-office sector. "Otherwise we would not have been expanding." Shared office space providers run large office spaces with all the amenities expected in a large corporate office. Individual rooms in the office space are then rented out to small and medium businesses, who share the offices amenities. Virgo clients can have all the advantages of a large corporate office in a prestigious New York location, for less than the cost of renting and running their own small offices.
The rental deal was brokered by CBRE group, with Anthony Dattoma and Scott Bogetti representing Virgo. Brad Needleman, Michael Affronti and Alexander Micael Golod represented AllianceBernstein. The building is owned by Fisher Brothers.
