10 Grand Central is stepping back in time.
The 35-story Art Deco office tower at 708 Third Ave. in Manhattan is going to be getting a 1930s New York look thanks to its owner, Marx Realty.
The vintage-style renovation is apparently in keeping with the rebranding of the building, says the Commercial Observer. The lobby and entrance were redesigned by Studios Architecture. They also added a new seventh-floor amenity space and terrace as part of the building’s $45 million renovation.
Architect Ely Jacques Kahn designed the stepped, 438,000-square-foot structure, which opened in 1931.
The reno also includes 10 prebuilt office suites ranging from 2,500 to 8,000 square feet. Marx has relocated roughly 80,000 square feet of tenants either within the building or to other properties to redo as much of the building as possible. The 80 percent leased property has rents ranging from the high $60s to the high $80s per square foot. Construction began in July and is expected to wind up in January.
