Cushman & Wakefield announced today that Jack Resnick & Sons has appointed the real estate firm as exclusive leasing agent for One Seaport Plaza at 199 Water Street, located between John and Fulton Streets.

A Cushman & Wakefield team led by John Cefaly, Andrew Peretz, Robert Constable, Gregory Scott, Joseph Harkins, and Courtney Adham will serve as exclusive leasing agent. The firm’s leasing efforts will complement and extend the Resnick Organization’s leasing expertise, led by Brett Greenberg and Dennis Brady.

“We are very pleased to be appointed the leasing agent for One Seaport Plaza and look forward to working with Burt and Jonathan Resnick and their talented team,” said Mr. Cefaly, a Cushman & Wakefield Executive Vice Chairman. “One Seaport Plaza is exceptional in the quality of its design and site configuration, with its expansive near column-free spacing providing efficient densities and abundant natural light that can accommodate the most stringent contemporary or traditional uses.”

“Cushman & Wakefield was the broker when we purchased the land and was our rental agent when we opened 199 Water in 1984; they played an integral role in the initial successful lease up. With a large block of leases expiring at the end of 2014 we look forward to working with them again,” said Jack Resnick & Sons CEO Burt Resnick.

Built in 1984 by Jack Resnick & Sons, the 1.1 million square foot trophy office tower stands 35 stories above the East River and has panoramic views of the New York Harbor, Brooklyn Bridge and Downtown skyline from all floors. Designed by Swanke Hayden Connell Architects, One Seaport Plaza is a unique architectural achievement, and distinguished by unique dual contextual granite façades, iconic to both its modern institutional pedigree and its historic setting overlooking the South Street Seaport.

One Seaport Plaza is undergoing an extensive lobby and elevator modernization program inclusive of infrastructure enhancements and added amenities complementing its versatile location. The building currently offers a two-floor 70,000 square foot immediate availability on the 14th and 15th floors and is readying an anticipated 300,000 square foot high-rise block of floors for future possession.
