Commercial Real Estate Rentals at The Grace Building
The W. R. Grace building (1114 Avenue of the Americas) was designed by Gordon Bunshaft of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. He designed the Solow Building, and took a similar approach with the Grace Building overlooking Bryant Park. From the base, the structure curves and tapers into a rectangular slab. The architect desired to depart from the boxy designs of previous decades. The Grade Building’s swooping facade is comprised of a grid of white travertine infilled with glass.
Office floors within the building contain 40,000 square feet at the base, tapering to 25,000 square feet above the 14th floor. Current tenants include Home Box Office, Baker & McKenzie and Perry Ellis Menswear. Several retail tenants are located on the ground floor including FedEx Kinko’s, as well as a welcome center for prospective students of the City University of New York. Amenities include a 188 car garage. The building is convenient to Bryant Park’s many subway lines including the B, D, F, M and 7 trains.
