ESRT Signs Two Office Tenants in Midtown

Empire State Realty Trust (ESRT) recently signed a new long-term office lease with Burlington Stores that nearly doubles the company’s footprint at 1400 Broadway from 35,182 to 68,307 square feet. The off-price retailer has been a tenant since 2010.

“As Burlington continues to grow and as we execute on our Burlington 2.0 initiatives, we appreciate ESRT’s partnership, allowing us to invest further in our merchandising team,” said Gayle Aertker, EVP store development, Burlington Stores. 

Tenant representation was provided by Colliers’ Alan Desino. Landlord representation was by Keith Cody of ESRT, along with Newmark’s Scott J. Klau, Erik S. Harris, and Neil L. Rubin.

In another recent ESRT office lease, Zentalis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. signed a new lease for 31,362 square feet at nearby 1359 Broadway. 

Justin Royce and Omar Sozkesen from Cushman & Wakefield represented Zentalis. Cody again represented ownership, whose best-known property, the Empire State Building, just turned 90.
