Citadel Seeks More Manhattan Office Space 

Ken Griffin’s Citadel is looking for more office space in Manhattan to accommodate a growing roster of New York employees, Bloomberg News reported

The Chicago-based hedge fund, with several Manhattan locations already, is in talks to lease additional office space at L&L Holding Company’s forthcoming 425 Park Ave., where it’s the anchor tenant, and at Olayan Group’s 550 Madison Ave. 

Citadel increased its headcount during the pandemic and is expected to continue hiring aggressively over the next several years, with a focus on New York, a source told Bloomberg. 

Griffin has been looking to Manhattan in recent years as he expands beyond Chicago. In 2019, he bought a penthouse at 220 Central Park South for $238 million, setting a U.S. record for a residential purchase. 

Citadel signed as the anchor tenant at 425 Park in 2016 and added to its space there before the pandemic.
