The West End Campus is a 3.4-acre assemblage on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, comprised of an 8-story, 400,000-square-foot building at 125 West End Avenue; a 6-story, 131,000-square-foot television studio facility at 320 West 66th Street; and an over 1.2-acre development parcel. Situated at the western apex of West 65th Street and served by the 1, 2, 3 subway lines, the site is conveniently positioned for regional access. These factors were invaluable to Chrysler Motor Company and The New York Times, two of the site’s previous owners, as well as the current tenant, The Walt Disney Company/The American Broadcasting Company, which has occupied the site as part of its New York City headquarters since 1985.
Taconic Partners is advancing the conversion of the 125 West End Avenue building into a state-of-the-art, purpose-built research and laboratory complex, which will meet the growing and unmet needs of the rapidly expanding life sciences sector in NYC. The repositioning of the building will feature open floorplates, a high performance façade, robust mechanical infrastructure, and unique amenities serving future tenants. Building on Taconic’s previous experience and intimate knowledge of this sector, 125 West End Avenue will mark the next milestone in the growth of Manhattan’s West Side life sciences cluster.
