Asset Manager Brevan Howard Expands at 1345 Ave. of the Americas

Brevan Howard has signed a lease agreement at Fisher Brothers’ 1345 Ave. of the Americas. Brevan Howard, an alternative asset manager and current tenant, will significantly increase its presence from a partial floor tenancy to occupy 83,403 square feet on two full floors. 

“As the citywide surge in demand for office space continues in New York, we are excited to grow our partnership with Brevan Howard,” said Ken Fisher, partner at Fisher Brothers. “Office culture and tenant needs have changed drastically, but 1345 has stayed on pace.”  

A Fisher Brothers in-house leasing team of Marc Packman, Clark Briffel, Charles P. Laginestra and Josh Fisher led negotiations for ownership. Brevan Howard was represented by Dan Posy and Joseph Messina from JLL. CBRE’s Howard Fiddle, Peter Turchin, Bill Iacovelli, Anthony Dattoma, Gregg Rothkin, and Benjamin Joseph also worked with Fisher Brothers on leasing negotiations.
