The New Heart of Harlem

The Corn Exchange is reborn! Originally built in 1883-1884 The Corn Exchange is a historically Landmarked Building which passed through many owners before falling into disrepair, finally suffering a major fire which saw the majority of the building demolished and condemned by the city.

Led by Harlem’s most active developer, The Corn Exchange has now been restored to its original glory with LEED certification, and offering ground floor retail space and six levels of Class A office space. The property is ready for occupancy and with incredible public transportation and pedestrian access this majestic building now stands at the center of business in Harlem once again.

New York, NY, 10025

Class A Office Space & Retail

The Corn Exchange offers over 37,000 SF of Class A office space with full sub-divisible ground floor retail across a 7 story building finished with beautiful polished concrete floors and exposed interior steel structure. The building also offers a full height leasable cellar space, and a roof terrace with a gorgeous view of upper Manhattan.

The building is also uniquely a part of the NYS Relocation and Employment Assistance Program (REAP) which can help your firm achieve dramatic cost savings over comparable office space below 96th Street.
