About 10 Grand Central

Marx Realty, a New York-based owner, developer and manager of office, retail and multifamily properties across the United States, completed the expansive amenity space added to the seventh floor at the recently rebranded 10 Grand Central. As part of a $48 million repositioning of the Ely Jacques Kahn-designed office tower located at 155 E. 44th St., the 7,500-square-foot indoor/outdoor lounge, terrace and conference space now features a hotel-like ambiance with plush seating, a conference facility with a 36-seat table and an outdoor terrace with an aesthetic reminiscent of a 1930s-era garden party. Additionally, the company unveiled a redesigned lobby.

The repositioning represents a distinct design disruption in the office sector with a hospitality-like appeal that includes details such as a signature scent, customizable mood music and video art installations throughout the building.

All ticket proceeds will be donated to Habitat for Humanity New York City.
