How does the office of tycoons to New York
• How does the financial bosses office in New York
It was very interesting to learn how to look inside New York City office buildings. What is there for the interiors, and what types of windows. But to get inside is not so simple. And recently I was able to visit the first of the new housing built the World Trade Center. It's about building called "7 World Trade Center."
It was so in my view should sit financial movers and shakers
It was built in 2006 and has long been fully leased. There are offices of various companies, and one of the floors was cast into startups. There we go. Developer and owner is a company Silverstein Properties, the same as building and other World Trade Center buildings. It is owned by billionaire Larry Silverstein. The building was built on the site of the previous WTC7, about the collapse that September 11, 2001 there are many different opinions and questions. Now I do not want to touch on this subject, since we are in the post is a little bit of something else.
It is in close proximity to the entrance to the PATH station, so there is always crowded and the large number of police.
Lobby. Entrance through the turnstiles. If you meet, you do not need to show any documents.
Then the expectation of the elevator floor button 46 and we are on the spot. Just a 52-floor building.
This office is different from the others in that it does not give up a single company and set. You rent one, two or three rooms, but use the full benefits of the office.
If you do not know, so you could not tell. No labels there, and the room a little different from each other. In addition to the rooms there is a reception with a secretary (he was on the Photo 6), several conference rooms, a Skype-room (show below), two meeting rooms, a cafeteria and a copy of the room, where there are shared printers and copiers. If not her, then we can use them.
The rooms are mostly small. Here it is for two people. But what kind of!
has an office for one person, two, four, five (he is pictured). Still have the corner with two rooms and a large bedroom. In the photo some very nice sleep. I shot through the glass wall.
I was particularly interested in the price. How much is to sit in a room with such views? Reporting. Prices start at $ 1,900 per month (this is for a small room with no windows) and up to 20 000 (this is for a large office of three rooms). A total of 60 start-floor office space.
Double room with a view is worth $ 4 500 per month (plus additional expenses such as telephone, internet and electricity). Take them not so much because of the species (they quickly become boring), but because of the prestige address.
If you need a meeting room for business meetings, it is necessary to rent for a fee. The one on the first photo is the most expensive and costs $ 200 per hour. Eat less for 100 and 50. In the photo below skype-room. Size of the room does not allow privacy for an important call, and then comes to the rescue this room. There are two rooms. There's a tablet and phone. For the use of facilities and equipment do not have to pay anything.
Interior corridor, where hang the photo of the object. There's a classic fountain with drinking water and sanitary facilities are located. In order to get to the bathroom you need to know the code.
have access to the office 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, but on weekends, as well as in other large office buildings in Manhattan, where the air conditioning system is switched off. Window, as you probably can guess, can not be opened.
The idea of the general office (one idea) is that the owners of the building itself raise serious future tenants. Startups can become large companies that need a good office, and they know where to go. I am confident that in economic terms it also brings its profit. Yet it is the only opportunity for the fledgling company rent an office in a prestigious location. Large room (as pictured) shall be contracts for up to 10 years and with the newcomers there is even talk will not. As in everything else, that is connected with expensive real estate in New York, just having money does not solve anything. Another should be a corresponding reputation, financial history, and so on. N. Interestingly, the office rent in the photo is clearly worth a lot of money, but it generally does not get rid of. One large space with concrete floors, cluttered office furniture.
Now, to the species. They immediately fascinating and inaccessible to the majority of New Yorkers (to say nothing about the tourists). Only when finished with the construction of the tower and there 1WTC open viewing platform, people finally will be able to look at New York from this angle. In the meantime, in any way, unless you have friends / acquaintances who work in these offices.

It was planned 100-story, and was to be the highest in the world, but the Great Depression did not allow him to rise above 29 floors. The building finished building only in 1950. Well, right you know yourself. If you suddenly forget the recall - a 77-storey skyscraper Chrysler Building, built in 1930. It was the tallest building in the world from 1930 to 1931, has not yet built the Empire State Building. Even the most beautiful skyscraper in New York.
