Law Firm GGF Renews Lease at Financial District Offices

 Cushman & Wakefield arranged a 10-year, 7,662-square-foot lease renewal for Garwin Gerstein & Fisher (GGF) at 88 Pine St. in Lower Manhattan’s Financial District. The law firm will occupy part of the 28th floor.

Cushman & Wakefield’s Aron Schreier, Max Mond and Jennifer Konefsky represented GGF. Landlord Orient Overseas Associates was represented by CBRE’s Gerry Miovski, Masha Dudelzak, Dorothy Chuang and Jonathan Cope.

“GGF relocated to 88 Pine St. in 2013 and is pleased to continue its commitment to the Financial District and 88 Pine Street for the long-term,” said Schreier. “GGF will benefit from new space within the building that is more reflective of the needs of its partners and staff, with breathtaking views of the East River and Manhattan skyline. Ownership is supportive of having a credit-worthy tenant like GGF to continue their tenancy at 88 Pine.”
