Blurring the boundaries of real estate, art and technology.

Let The Plant be the nerve center of your organization and creative hub for your employees and clients.

a heritage of creativity,
a legacy of collaboration

John Lennon recorded Imagine here. Bruce Springsteen recorded Born to Run here. Aerosmith, Jimi Hendrix, Cheap Trick, the Allman Brothers, Cindi Lauper, and Van Halen have all recorded culturally iconic smash hits here.

The Record Plant, a tenant of the building from the late 60's to the mid-80's, was the first studio to provide the music artist with a comfortable, casual environment for recording. A trailblazing innovator in the recording industry, The Record Plant single-handedly changed studios from what they were—fluorescent lights, white walls, and hardwood floors—into the living rooms that they are today. Teams of artists, producers, and technicians came together to produce.

For years, The Plant has been the focal point of collaboration between talent, energy, and purpose. Let The Plant be the same for your business.

RAIN, FAILE OR SHINE.
WATCH OUR TRANSFORMATION.

We are proud to announce our collaboration with FAILE, the Brooklyn-based artists Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller. Famed for their wide-ranging use of multimedia and distinctive iconography, FAILE recently designed and installed an exterior mural on the east-facing face of The Plant. Elements of the mural pay homage to the building's rich history as a creative engine in the heart of New York's Times Square/Theatre district.

Creativity, Energy, Collaboration: FAILE's mural both echoes and continues the unique narrative of The Plant.

LIGHTNING FAST ETHERNET

A state of the art, fiber-optic technical communications backbone has been incorporated into The Plant's infrastructure, enabling tenants to access high-performance voice and data services at extremely competitive pricing. Tenants of The Plant will enjoy the lightning fast speeds of Metro Ethernet ­a private, dedicated circuit over fiber ­which outperforms cable, broadband, and DSL.

Unlike other office buildings in Manhattan, The Plant owns its fiber - which translates into better control of costs and service. And in order to ensure premium service, The Plant partnered with Single Digits, a local expert telecom firm, to provide a unique, cloud-based telecommunications solution.
