Avison Young Tapped to Handle Leasing at Financial District Tower

Avison Young has been named exclusive leasing agent for Ivanhoé Cambridge’s 85 Broad St., a 1.1 million-square-foot, 30-story, class-A office building in Lower Manhattan’s Financial District. A New York-based Avison Young team led by Keith Caggiano, with Todd Korren, Patrick Steffens and Rachel Rosenfeld, as well as Harry Klaff, global president of clients, will represent Ivanhoé Cambridge. 

The team will work in concert with the building’s asset and property manager Hines, which will continue to handle day-to-day operations. 

“We are exceptionally proud to partner with Ivanhoé Cambridge and Hines to represent this iconic asset. 85 Broad Street’s unique position in the center of Lower Manhattan’s thriving business and social life has always attracted top-tier companies from a broad section of industries,” said Caggiano.  

Klaff added, “Our vision for a re-imagined 85 Broad St. will create the premier combination of work/play/live in Manhattan.”
