How to Find  the Perfect Showroom Space for Rent in NYC

Showroom space with clothing displayed.

You want to find an ideal showroom to display your merchandise in your chosen neighborhood, with the right amount of space, great lighting and good access, all at a price that fits your budget, right? Whether you’re showing apparel, lingerie, accessories, home furnishings or something else, the space you choose has a big impact on how your product is perceived.

How to get it right – You need to work with an agent that represents your interests. Retain a Manhattan commercial real estate broker who works for you, not the landlord or the leasing agent. If you do go directly to the leasing agent, be aware that their highest priority will be to negotiate the best lease for the landlord, not you.

We are privy to every commercial building in New York City that has showroom space available for rent. Based on our experience, we know which landlord and building will be the best fit for your business. We understand which buildings have the suitable showroom space for your needs and which landlords are willing to negotiate favorable business terms in order to get you into their building.

Most showrooms feature high ceilings and large open areas that add the “wow factor” to your displays. Some have extra room in the back for storing additional inventory, making it easy to replenish stock when needed. Others have office areas adjacent to the showroom for executives and marketing staff and all have freight elevators for your convenience.

Location, Location, Location – The location of your showroom rental is very important to the success of your business. Some of these buildings and neighborhoods cater to particular types of industries. For example, The Garment District is well-known for apparel/clothing showrooms. Midtown East and Murray Hill are a decorator and designers dream. In fact, there’s pretty much a neighborhood for every industry seeking showroom space to rent.
