Quest Workspaces unveils New York location
Business center operator Quest Workspaces has announced its expansion into New York with a location in midtown Manhattan.
The location will officially open on Nov. 1 but already has 60% occupancy, including companies Starwood Hotels and Dewey & LeBoeuf, who will be using the center as they work through bankruptcy, said Quest Workspaces President and CEO Laura Kozelouzek.
The new 16,000-square-foot location at the Time Life Building, 1271 Avenue of the Americas, 43rd floor, is situated in Rockefeller Center and across from Radio City Music Hall.
Kozelouzek, who is a native New Yorker, decided to open a New York business center because of the synergy between New York and South Florida and in response to client requests, she said.
South Florida-based Quest Workspaces services range in price depending on the size of a space. For a smaller conference room or smaller office the price can start as low as $20 an hour, she said. In addition, the business center offers a virtual office program for under $200 a month that includes use of the business address, mail retrieval and a direct phone number answered by a receptionist.
“I think that the way we approach service offices is somewhat unique in that one thing we focus on is a sense of community, where our clients are able to collaborate and share business resources and also share a real fun work environment,” Kozelouzek said.
The company has four other locations in Boca Raton, Coral Gables, Fort Lauderdale and Miami and plans to expand more in the Northeast region.
