Cushman & Wakefield announced today that the firm has been appointed by RXR Realty as exclusive leasing agent for approximately 100,000 square feet being vacated by Pearson PLC at Avenue of the Americas, located between 53rd and 54th Streets. Ownership recently completed a capital improvement program, which included an upgrade to the building’s plaza.
The total space, which will be available when Pearson PLC vacates at the end of 2013, accounts for seven floors in the 40-story trophy building, which includes floors 7 to 10, 14, 16 and 17. In addition to the available space, the illuminated signage, which is visible on all four-sides of the tower, is also available to a tenant leasing multiple floors.
A Cushman & Wakefield team led by Bruce Mosler, Chairman of Global Brokerage, Tara Stacom, Vice Chairman, Mikael Nahmias, Senior Managing Director of the firm’s Strategic Agency Services Group, Jared Horowitz, Executive Director, Whitten Morris, Associate Director and Peter Alden, Senior Associate, will serve as leasing agent.
“This is an incredible branding opportunity for a trophy building in Midtown Manhattan that offers high-quality space with hands-on ownership,” said Mr. Mosler.
1330 Avenue of the Americas, which is a class-A office building that was built in 1965 and completely renovated in 2006, is located within walking distance to Central Park and near major subway lines.
