We are incredibly excited to announce the launch of ElevatedNY, premium offices at the Hippodrome building in Midtown. Today marks not only a new name for one of the longest-running shared office spaces in New York, but the beginning of a more upscale experience for all of our tenants, said Jon Dario, Chief Operating Officer of Edison Properties, owner of Hippodrome NYC. By adding these improvements to our unmatched customer service and comprehensive suite of amenities, we can continue to ensure our tenants grow and succeed in this historic building.
ElevatedNY also comes complete with a comprehensive suite of services and modern amenities for tenants, including full reception and concierge services, a dedicated mothers' room, event space, monthly networking events and access to complimentary coffee, tea, sparkling water and other beverages. An on-site management team can also provide tenants with access to a number of professional services including payroll, health benefits, parking, in-suite construction, hotel services, carsharing and storage.
The facility, which includes space on the Hippodrome's 4th, 15th and 18th floors, has operated as shared office space for more than 25 years. It was formerly known as ReadySet! Offices.
ElevatedNY is already home to a long and diverse list of exciting tenants, ranging from creative businesses and financial advisors to consultants, law firms and more, said ElevatedNY General Manager Georgia Gournas. In today's market, companies across nearly every industry are seeking a highly flexible, amenitized workplace, and this newly reimagined space will give both our current and future tenants a truly first-class place that can help them propel their business to new heights.
Originally built in 1905, The Hippodrome, was once the premier theater of its age, hosting circuses and popular vaudeville acts such as illusionist Harry Houdini. It was eventually transformed into an office building and acquired by Edison Properties in 1978. Since 2006, the building has been modernized to include a glass curtain wall, and two-story lobby finished in marble and limestone.
The Hippodrome also features landlord-managed security, cleaning, and parking, as well as lobby event space and on-site conference facilities. On-site retail includes Chase Bank, Fidelity, FedEx, AT&T, Gregory's Coffee, Proper Foods, and Hippodrome Cleaners.
In addition to ElevatedNY, Edison Properties operates Workspace Offices, with locations in Manhattan's SoHo and Inwood neighborhoods. Workspace Offices provides flexible studio and office spaces with phone, internet, common areas with free coffee and tea, free FedEx and UPS package acceptance, loading docks for large deliveries, affordable on-premises storage and discounted parking at Edison ParkFast.
