Jenner & Block Joins Other Legal Tenants at Durst Tower

Jenner & Block LLP signed a 15-year lease for 66,935 square feet on four floors of the Durst Organization’s 1155 Ave. of the Americas. The 100-plus-year-old firm is moving from 919 Third Ave. and is the fourth law firm to sign at the building over the past three years.
When 1155A of A opened in 1984, “the anchor tenant was a law firm that relocated from downtown Manhattan,” said Jonathan Durst, president of The Durst Organization. “Nearly 40 years later, the building continues to be a magnet for legal tenants and boutique headquarters.”

Jenner & Block was represented by CBRE vice chairman Lewis Miller, EVP Jason Gorman and first VP Zachary Weil, and in-house by partner Donald Resnick. The Durst Organization was represented in-house by EVP Tom Bow, senior managing director Rocco Romeo and senior leasing associate Tanya Grimaldo.
