Freight Elevator Service
Paramount Plaza has two freight elevators with direct access to the 51st Street loading dock. These freight elevators have their own secured service lobby on each floor and are located in the area facing west to the 8th Avenue side of the building. Both cars serve the C-2 level through the 48th floor.
The daily hours of the building freight cars are 8:00am to 5:00pm for normal deliveries. Each tenant is permitted three trips in the freight car for deliveries during regular business hours. All deliveries exceeding three trips will require the elevators to be reserved outside business hours. All construction material or move-in / out times must be scheduled before or after normal business hours.
