Blue Owl Capital Makes Seagram Building Its Home

Blue Owl Capital, a global alternative asset manager with more than $119 billion in assets under management, is leasing 137,660 square feet at RFR’s Seagram Building, 375 Park Ave. in Midtown Manhattan.  The transaction pushes Seagram’s leasing tally over 375,000 square feet for 2022 year-to-date, with the iconic office tower now approaching full occupancy.   

Driving Seagram’s strong leasing performance is Seagram Playground, a first-of-its-kind amenity in the Manhattan office market. “I am committed to ensure the Seagram Building remains the best and most celebrated office building in the world – delivering new oxygen to the workplace by redefining the line between work and amenity,” said Aby Rosen, co-founder and principal of RFR.  

Blue Owl Capital was represented by Mark Weiss of Cushman & Wakefield.  Ownership was represented by JLL’s Peter Riguardi, Paul Glickman, Cynthia Wasserberger and Ben Bass, and by RFR’s AJ Camhi and Paul Milunec.
