With a vertically sloping exterior clad in alternating layers of white travertine and horizontal windows, the W.R. Grace Building is a unique modern office building that stands high above the New York building landscape. With 1.5 million square feet of office and retail space available and 47 stories, this 1971-built structure is anything but an average Central Midtown skyscraper.
Overlooking the New York Public Library and Bryant Park, it offers a serene respite from the business of the city around it. Its 42nd Street entrance between Fifth and Sixth avenues is directly across the street from subway lines B, D, F, M and the 7-7 Express, close to Penn Station, the Grand Central Terminal, and Port Authority. An underground parking garage accommodates 188 cars, giving employees convenience as well as a great view.
