Biggest New York Landlords Adding In-house Doctors to Tenant Amenities

At 750 Third Avenue, SL Green has signed a contract with a concierge medical service that will give renters healthcare services such as COVID-19 testing, immunizations, annual physicals, treatment for urgent illnesses, mental health, and more.

Tenants at 485 Lexington will also be able to use the Reside Health facility, which will be the company’s second in Manhattan after the one that opened in TF Cornerstones Carnegie Hall Tower in May.

SL Green’s senior vice president and director of leasing, Steven M. Durels, said, “Forward-thinking tenants are continuing to explore for new, more personalized approaches to satisfy employees’ requirements.” “Reside accomplishes this while maintaining the building’s overall health and safety. We’re ecstatic to have them here and to continue working with forward-thinking enterprises on behalf of our clients.”

Colliers arranged for Reside Health to sign a multi-year lease at 750 Third Avenue. Reside’s real estate needs in New York are entirely represented by vice-chairman Marcus Rayner and managing director Sam Einhorn.

“Reside Health facilities don’t require enormous footprints and are incredibly space-efficient,” Einhorn added. “Unused lobby or mezzanine space, amenity levels, and conventional office space can all contribute to a site that offers landlords long-term value and tenants peace of mind.”

Reside is a unique health and wellness amenity that many landlords are actively seeking to help attract and retain new tenants. It was founded by Kevin Ryan, one of the country’s leading technology investors and entrepreneurs, and Komal Kothari, a Harvard-trained physician.

Dr. Kothari stated, “This last year has taught us just how conscious and careful we all need to be about our health.” “Reside’s strategy of delivering primary care and wellness services as an amenity is the way commercial properties will care for their residents in the future.” We assist landlords to build higher experiences and safer workplaces in the post-pandemic era by making healthcare more accessible than ever.”

Building tenants and a limited number of additional participants will be able to arrange same-day appointments through Reside’s smartphone, check-in electronically, and come down for the appointment without having to travel. Reside Health, unlike other doctors’ offices, does not have a waiting area, and its new location boasts a gorgeous, modern design and a spa-like atmosphere.

“Every landlord has taken steps to improve the work environment, from adding better HVAC systems to situating sanitation stations around the buildings,” Rayner added. “However, forward-thinking landlords are taking advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to differentiate their apartments by incorporating world-class health-focused amenities.” As the office market continues to recover, services like Reside are becoming increasingly important to tenants when making real estate decisions.”

750 Third Avenue is a Class A office building just two blocks from Grand Central Terminal. SL Green Realty owns and manages the 34-story, LEED Silver-certified building, which was restored in 1984. FTI Consulting, Ropers, Majeski, Kohn & Bentley, and Sompo International are among the building’s notable tenants.

Reside has been dubbed “the healthcare paradigm of the future” by Jake Elghanayan, a principal at TF Cornerstone, the owners of Carnegie Hall Tower.

“Now, workers will be able to see the doctor without the bother of taking time off work, sitting in waiting rooms, or navigating enormous healthcare facilities,” Elghanayan remarked after welcoming the company to his building.
