The fun-factor train keeps on chugging along at the citys premier office buildings as landlords struggle to arrest an alarming increase in vacancies, which now top 20% overall.

The Post reported last week that landlords have introduced unprecedented numbers and varieties of amenities that are exclusively for tenants use — a strong inducement both for luring companies to their properties and encouraging employees to quit their WFH habit and return to the office.

Now comes word of even more of them.

Theres a 300-seat town hall space that doubles as a social stair overlooking a West 33rd Street plaza at Vornados redeveloped Penn 2; a plush breakfast room for employees at Brookfields 22 Vanderbilt; and fifteen (count em, 15) golf simulators at former New York Post owner Peter Kalikows 101 Park Ave.

Athletic facilities are much in demand these days — we noted last week that the Seagram Buildings subterranean Playground for example has basketball and pickleball courts and even a rock-climbing wall.

Whats next? Indoor ski slopes?  

Interestingly, many of the most elaborate fun facilities are in buildings that are anything but starved for tenants.

For example, 101 Park Ave. is 97% leased to an array of financial tenants and 1 World Trade Center, which has a 64th-floor wellness and athletic center, is more than 95% leased to Cond Nast and others.
