CBRE recently completed four offices leases at 55 Broadway totaling 40,944 square feet, including two new leases, an expansion, and a renewal. The CBRE team led by Brad Gerla along with Jonathan Cope, Caroline Merck and Craig Motola represented the ownership of 55 Broadway, Harbor Group International.
The transactions include an 18,294-square-foot new lease for the Consulate General of Morocco; a 10,986-square-foot new commitment by Assurant, a global provider of risk management products and services; a 7,071-square-foot renewal by law firm Hannum Feretic Prendergast + Merlino; and a 4,493-square-foot expansion by fund manager Clear Street.
“We are thrilled to announce the most recent deals at 55 Broadway, a unique, Class A office tower in Downtown Manhattan,” said Gerla. “While we faced a number of challenges due to the global pandemic, our entire CBRE team was able to work closely with the ownership and the brokerage community to complete these transactions.”
