JLL Arranges Pair of Pre-Built Spaces in Flatiron District 

JLL completed two leases totaling approximately 6,400 square feet at 27 W. 24th St. in Manhattan’s Flatiron District on behalf of owner MJ Orbach Associates. 

Zebra, an international design and architecture firm, signed a lease for 3,000 square feet of pre-built office space on the sixth floor. Moonfare, a leading digital private equity investment platform, leased 3,400 square feet of pre-built space on the eighth floor. 

The JLL team of Sam Seiler, Joe Sipala and Courtney Oarr represented Orbach in both transactions. Zebra was represented by Jake Velazquez with Compass, and Moonfare was represented by Ben Saftler with Squarefoot. 

“MJ Orbach Associates has invested to thoughtfully transform this property to meet the current needs of tenants,” said Sipala. “Additional move-in ready pre-built spaces are underway on partial and full-floors positioning the building to accommodate companies seeking 3,000- to 20,000-square-feet of loft-style creative space.”
