Have you ever found yourself trying to break down the logistics of a movie or TV show? Or maybe you’re an amateur real estate agent who prefers crunching possible numbers rather than paying attention to plot points. If you’re at all curious as to how much it would cost to rent an iconic office space from a favorite movie or show, then prepare to be indulged.
VoiceNation, a new outsourced call answering and live chat provider, wanted to break down how much money it would cost to rent some of our favorite on-screen office spaces, and Miranda Priestly’s workplace from “The Devil Wears Prada” pales in comparison to that of Jordan Belfort in “The Wolf of Wall Street”.
By using the average price for office space per square foot in 2021, as well as including prices for standard office equipments like desks, computers, and chairs, and even looking into how many employees are employees at the real firms these fictional companies are based on, VoiceNation found that Priestly’s office space would cost $2,880,807 a year to rent — which is honestly chump change compared to the 30 Rock offices which are the most expensive at $14,325,300.
Stratton Oakmont, the office from “The Wolf of Wall Street”, is the second most-expensive office space at $10,366,694 annually with the offices from “The Bold Type” coming in third at $9,829,433. Shocker — all the most expensive offices are located in New York City.
Unsurprisingly, Dunder Mifflin from “The Office” only set the company back about $243,347 which is just slightly more expensive than the most affordable office on the list from “The Politician”, which only cost just over $52,000 annually.
