Following an extensive lobby and façade renovation for 10 Grand Central at 155 East 44th Street in Midtown East, Marx Realty will soon debut a collection of office suites on the top floors of the commercial tower. Located on floors 32 through 36, “The Penthouse Collection” can be configured as 5,000-square-foot single-floor leases or combined into a 10,000-square-foot duplex space or a 15,000-square-foot triplex office.
In 2019, Marx Realty completed an extensive overhaul of the building’s main lobby and lower level façade to provide more immediate access to Grand Central Terminal. The New York-based owner and developer reports over 178,000 square feet of new leases since the announcement of the renovation project and sought to capitalize on that momentum with The Penthouse Collection.
“The next logical step after bringing our one-of-a-kind hospitality aesthetic to 10 Grand Central was to provide the ultimate office experience for high-end users,” said Craig Deitelzweig, president and CEO of Marx Realty. “We’ve already attracted top-tier tenants and well-known groups to the building with our hotel-like ambiance, best-in-class service, and beautifully designed office spaces. The Penthouse Collection raises the bar even higher with ridiculously luxurious finishes and an experience comparable to a stay at the finest penthouse suite in a luxury hotel.”
With hospitality as the central motif, future tenants will have access to private elevators with a uniformed doorman, wood finishes including walnut and herringbone flooring, as well as a private bar and café. Floors 35 and 36 are connected by a grand staircase and open up to a 3,500-square-foot outdoor terrace and a separate 2,400-square-foot solarium positioned on the western edge of the suite. Ceiling heights of 20 feet and floor-to-ceiling windows offer direct views of the Chrysler Building and the surrounding architecture of Midtown East.
The asking rents for the penthouses are $130 per square foot.
The redesign was led by a Marx interior design team and David Burns, principal of Studios Architecture. JLL is handling all leasing on behalf of Marx Realty.

What a superb addition to the Grand Central neighborhood. Design and detailing recall the best of ’30s Manhattan. BUT, that lobby is atrocious, looks very budget-driven, blah and suburban, and not in keeping with the building’s compelling exterior. YIKES!
So, at 10 Grand Central, instead of restoring the old, authentic and sumptuous entrance facade, they decided to just add some bras to the old 1060 vandalism of flat counter-top slabs of black stone, replacing the old, hacked off beautify of old facade?? Well done–so very NOT. Does the police know about these “developers” (in reality, art vandals)?
