Brookfield Properties has secured three new office lease transactions totaling more than 67,000 square feet at 225 Liberty St. in Brookfield Place New York. The three leases bring the building to 94% occupancy.
The long-term leases include the following: Simon-Kucher & Partners, a global strategy and marketing consulting firm, signed a lease for 27,458 square feet; DRW Holdings, LLC, a diversified trading firm, signed a lease for 17,012 square feet; and a leading investment management firm leased 22,600 square feet.
“These long-term commitments underscore the fact that forward-looking businesses across an array of industries are continuing to seek out top-tier office space,” said David McBride, VP leasing at Brookfield Properties. “Brookfield Place – a bustling destination steps from mass transit with sweeping waterfront views, high-tech design and an abundance of shops, culinary outposts, and cultural happenings – embodies the exact environment tenants are looking for to attract and retain top talent.”
