CXP Previews Repositioning of 149 Madison in NoMad

Columbia Property Trust (CXP) on Tuesday previewed its ongoing transformation of 149 Madison Ave. in the NoMad neighborhood of Midtown South. The extensive modernization and repositioning program is expected to be completed by year-end.

CXP has partnered with Newmark to lead both the office and retail leasing efforts for 149 Madison. The property, which includes 114,000 square feet of office space, offers a “building-within-a-building” opportunity that incorporates a private ground floor entrance and company branding. CXP is also constructing prebuilt office suites on the fifth floor of the building.

 “Our comprehensive repositioning of 149 Madison combines its distinctive architecture with contemporary design elements and state-of-the-art systems to deliver the style and functionality that companies value today,” said David Cheikin, SVP, asset management and leasing for CXP.  “The reimagined 149 Madison is well-suited for firms seeking an environment to support and reward the ingenuity and creativity of their teams.”
