77 Water St Gets New Manager Ahead of Repositioning

Sage Realty Corporation, the leasing and management division of the William Kaufman Organization, has named Sam DiPietrantonio as building manager of 77 Water St. in Lower Manhattan. She will oversee all building operations as Sage takes over management of the property from Goldman Sachs on April 1.

DiPietrantonio will also take the lead on the 600,000-square-foot office tower’s future repositioning. The building is owned by WKO in partnership with Principal Real Estate Investors.

“Sam will fill a critical role for the company as we embark on this significant transition period at 77 Water St.,” said Jonathan Kaufman Iger, CEO of WKO and Sage. Before joining Sage Realty, she was assistant property manager for 10 years at Vornado Realty Trust’s 1290 Ave. of the Americas, and prior to that was a leasing administrator for Olmstead Properties’ Manhattan portfolio.
