How much does an office in The Empire State Building cost?

Branded as one of the most iconic buildings not only in New York, but the world, the Empire State Building requires no introduction. Standing at 1,454 feet tall and featuring 102 floors of stylish interior furnishings behind its architecturally inviting exterior, for almost 40 years, it stood as the tallest building in the world until the World Trade Center’s north tower was built in the late 1970’s.

The apex of this grand landmark is home to observation decks and in excess of 100 million visitors over its illustrious 90-year history have looked in awe at the fantastic 360-degree views of the city. As a fully functioning commercial building, the skyscraper provides a place to call home for many prestigious and well-known entrepreneurs and enterprises.

How much does an office in The Empire State Building cost?
