A dedicated bike storage center is now located in a fully-secured area at 399 Park Avenue (54th Street).  The other properties in the program are 599 Lexington Avenue (53rd Street), 601 Lexington Avenue (54th Street), 510 Madison Avenue (53rd Street) and 540 Madison Avenue (55th Street).

“This is a pioneering amenity for office buildings in New York that contributes to a healthier environment for everyone,” said John Powers, Senior Vice President, Regional Manager of the New York Office.

“A free, convenient and secure on-site storage facility encourages tenants to take their bikes to work, which supports their active lifestyles, with the added benefits of reducing traffic congestion and lowering carbon emissions.”

Boston Properties’ Bike Valet is open from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. to accommodate those who arrive to work early and leave late.

All of the buildings participating in the program are located within four blocks of 399 Park Avenue, making it especially convenient for people to travel to work and store their bicycles daily.

Boston Properties is a fully-integrated, self-administered and self-managed real estate investment trust that develops, re-develops, acquires, manages, operates and owns a diverse portfolio of Class A office space, one hotel, two residential properties and five retail properties.

The company is one of the largest owners and developers of Class A office properties in the United States, concentrated in four markets – Boston, New York, San Francisco and Washington, DC.
