It’s hard to imagine a better location than that of Congregate by Industrious. Not only is this Midtown Manhattan office space only a few blocks from Bryant Park, Grand Central, New York Public Library, and Times Square — putting some of the city’s most storied sites within walking distance — but also the building itself is a landmark in its own right. In 1907, Andrew Carnegie had it constructed as a gift to The Engineering Society, whose members included the likes of Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla. Its limestone and brick facade still houses a number of original features, including its tall ceilings and ornate lobby.

Today, Congregate by Industrious occupies the building’s seventh, eighth, and ninth floors, providing members with a range of purpose-built spaces designed for everything from brainstorming and networking to conference calls and focus work.
