Midtown is committed to delivering world-class hospitality to members and we understand the importance the Corporate Development & Facilities team plays in ensuring the consistency of that experience. We recognize that the condition and maintenance of our buildings establish the foundation for an incredible member experience. Without a strong culture of safety, a fanatical approach to club cleanliness, functioning facilities and equipment, and a constant focus on maintaining and caring for our buildings, Midtown values will not be achieved.
