Insurer EPIC Moves Up to Full Tenancy at 1140 Ave. of the Americas

New York City REIT, Inc. (NYC) has executed a new lease with an existing subtenant to retain and expand its current office space at 1140 Ave. of the Americas. The lease with Edgewood Partners Insurance Center (EPIC) expands its presence and features 10.5 years of lease term. NYC didn’t disclose the size of the lease, other than to say it increases EPIC’s footprint by “over 50%.” 

“We are pleased to complete this lease with EPIC, a high-quality brokerage and consulting firm that specializes in retail risk management and employee benefits insurance,” said Michael Weil, CEO of NYC. “The lease requires payment of approximately $1.3 million in annualized, straight-line rent over a 10.5-year lease term.  

“Our team, along with our broker Avison Young, did a great job working with EPIC to complete this lease and we are glad to have EPIC as our direct tenant,” Weil continued.
