What's LM

LM stands for Lower Manhattan!  If you haven’t been to LM recently, you may not even recognize it today.  With 800+ creative companies flocking below Chambers Street, the oldest neighborhood is being completely redefined.  From technologists to advertising agencies, from city employees to financiers, from graphic designers and architects to nonprofit workers, you can find a cross-roads of industries in Lower Manhattan.  Lower Manhattan is a natural location for LMHQ – serving as the central meeting place for this dynamic community to come together to collaborate, meet over coffee, to brainstorm, and to attend thought leadership programs.

Lower Manhattan is one of the city’s most accessible neighborhoods.  Whether you’re already in Lower Manhattan, Brooklyn, New Jersey, or elsewhere, LMHQ is easy to get to.  For more information on how to find LMHQ, click here.


The mission of the Alliance for Downtown New York is to be the principal organization that provides Lower Manhattan's historic financial district with a premier physical and economic environment, advocates for businesses and property owners and promotes the area as a world-class destination for companies, workers, residents and visitors. The Downtown Alliance manages the Downtown-Lower Manhattan Business Improvement District (BID), serving an area roughly from City Hall to the Battery, from the East River to West Street.

The Downtown Alliance is striving to make Lower Manhattan a wonderful place to live, work and play by creating a vibrant, multi-use neighborhood where businesses can prosper and the residential community can flourish.

Are you a coworking space?

No! LMHQ serves as "the third space" in between your home and office. We function as an add-on to your office — get away from your desk and take up some space here, hold a meeting, have a war room, or host an event for up to 200 guests. You can work smart offsite at LMHQ. Since we are not a full-time office location, LMHQ does not offer storage or mail service.

Do you offer dedicated seats at LMHQ?

No, LMHQ is for the nomadic worker and those that want to be a part of our growing community, rather than being your full-time office space.

Where are you located, and what are your hours?

We're located in Lower Manhattan on the 20th floor of 150 Broadway. We've got some pretty incredible views of the city from all angles.

We're open and staffed Monday - Friday 8am - 6pm. Members can access LMHQ on evenings and weekends.

Can I sign up for membership as an individual?

Absolutely. At this time, we offer membership for both companies and individuals. You can find all of the pricing information for both types on our membership page.

Do you offer a drop-in rate?

We do! Drop-in for a one-time $30 fee which includes access to the clubhouse for working, meeting and lounging for the full day. Drop-ins also have a la carte conference room access. To check out our conference room sizes and amenities, have a look at our Rent LMHQ page.

Can I host my event at your space without being a member?

Definitely. We'd love to hear more about your event first to make sure that we can appropriately accommodate your needs. Please answer a few questions, and we promise we’ll be in touch with your shortly. We look forward to working together!

Do you partner with organizations for offsite events?

Yes, we do! Please send a detailed note to hello@lmhq.nyc, and we will be in touch with you shortly.

What are the amenities for members?

From our onsite coffee bar, to state of the art a/v, and high speed internet enjoy access to everything you need to get stuff done. You can read about the amenities available based upon your membership type.
