B. Riley Joins Financial Tenant Roster at 299 Park

B. Riley Financial has signed on for 29,173 square feet at Fisher Brothers’ 299 Park Ave. The lease follows B. Riley’s acquisition last June of FBR & Co., which had been a subtenant at 299 Park since 2004. Under the new 10-year deal, Los Angeles-based B. Riley will occupy the entire 21st floor.

“B. Riley inherited a sublease at 299 Park and, after considering other alternatives in the area, determined this location provided the level of quality and service best suited for their needs,” said Fisher Brothers partner Winston Fisher. Bryant Riley, the tenant’s chairman and CEO, said 299 Park was “the right fit” in terms of his company’s standards for the client experience, “and that includes the environment we provide them as well as our employees.”

NKF’s Jared Horowitz and Justin Pollner represented B. Riley. Fisher Brothers was advised in-house by Marc Packman and Charles P. Laginestra.
