250 Park Avenue

This lovely pre–war office building boasts LEED Gold certification just steps from Grand Central Terminal.

Designed in 1924 by Cross & Cross Architects, the 21-story 250 Park Avenue is located across the street from access to Grand Central Terminal in Midtown. A recent capital improvement program resulted in the 540,000-square-foot tower earning what was at the time New York City’s fifth Gold rating under the LEED for Existing Buildings rating system.

250 Park Avenue was actually the first building to acquire air rights from Grand Central Station after its construction. The tower was originally named the Postum Building – after the Postum Cereal Company – and, later, was named for General Mills.

A classic marble and stone lobby leads to wood-trimmed elevator corridors and cabs. Flexible floorplates offering full and partial occupancy, coupled with modern building infrastructure, make 250 Park Avenue attractive to tenants of every size and stripe.

With a strong institutional owner and prime Midtown location, 250 Park Avenue’s sustainable features are the perfect 21st- century-addition to this historic, pre-war trophy property.
