Midtown Office Landlords Donate Spaces to NYS Rapid Testing Program

Following Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s announcement of the launch of the New York Forward Rapid Test Program, the Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY) spotlighted REBNY members who played a key role in the initiative by identifying and donating space that now hosts some of the state’s new rapid COVID-19 testing centers.

Three of the initial 11 rapid testing centers are located in commercial spaces that were identified and donated by REBNY members:
 
• 6 W. 52nd St.
Space provided by Vornado Realty Trust
 
• 599 Lexington Ave.
Space provided by Boston Properties
 
• 1700 Broadway
Space provided by Rockpoint Group and Cushman & Wakefield

Numerous other REBNY members are also identifying and donating spaces that are expected to host additional sites. The New York Forward Rapid Test Program makes low-cost rapid testing available to the public to support economic activity as the state continues to safely reopen.
