Frequently Asked Questions
How much do your spaces cost?
We work hard to make sure we have the most competitive rates in the city. Depending on the location and the season, the rates are adjustable. Please contact us to receive a quote and availability.
YOUR PRICES ARE OUT OF MY BUDGET, WHAT CAN I DO?
Sorry! While we try to keep our prices competitive, we understand the rising costs of NYC real estate can be outside the budget for smaller emerging galleries, artists and brands. Check out Parasol Projects Shop Share Program, it is a great way to still have access to our high traffic spaces, while sharing the space to reduce overhead.
Do you provide marketing support?
We have a community of over 10,000 arts, fashion, technology, and media lovers and professionals. We are always more than happy to share any promotional material that you send our way. We share our content by means of a biweekly newsletter, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
IS INSURANCE NECESSARY?
Yes, every renter must be covered by liability insurance. This is to protect you during the length of your stay. If you do not already have this, it is easy to attain and very affordable. Upon signing, we will provide you with details of our recommended insurance providers.
Am I allowed to host an event?
Yes, all of our spaces are well suited for events. Specific capacities, hours of operation, and regulations vary by location. Full details can be provided upon request.
Will your staff be present during our lease?
No, when you assume the lease of the space, the gallery is yours. However, our team is always available should any issues arise.
What are the minimum and maximum lengths of stay?
Our typical rental cycle is weekly, with move-in on Tuesday at 10:00 AM and move-out the following Monday 12:00 PM. There is no maximum duration of your stay, so long as we have the availability to accommodate your needed dates. We do make occasional exceptions to the weekly cycle, depending on the dates and the project.
Your current locations do not suit my needs, can you still help?
Yes, we have relationships with and insights into an extended network of spaces throughout both New York and London. Feel free to let us know what you are looking for if we do not already provide it.
