[salonlb.] comprises approximately half of the 5th floor of 1010 West 35th Street, which is an industrial office building with low foot traffic. Due to the original windows on this landmark building, ambient city and street sounds are expected. Therefore, the space is not soundproof.

We do have neighboring creative businesses and office spaces on the 5th floor, so if you are planning anything with an excessive noise level during your rental we ask that you notify us ahead of time so that we can adjust your day/time slot and plan accordingly.

The 1010 West 35th Street building can be accessed via the loading dock/ramp within the parking lot or the nearby visitor entrance. There are two elevators that can be taken to the 5th floor. They are freight load bearing but are standard commercial elevator dimensions.

The building has publicly accessible, spacious stairways. It is also fully ADA accessible with a wheelchair ramp at the main entrance off the parking lot.
