Lever House Restaurant Signs Long-Term Renewal with Plans for Refurbishment
Brookfield Properties and WatermanClark, LLC have signed Casa Lever, a Milanese fine dining destination located on the ground floor of Park Avenue’s landmark office tower, Lever House, to a long-term lease renewal for its space. The lease extension comes as Casa Lever embarks on a full refurbishment of its interior dining room and the creation of new outdoor dining, lounge and bar spaces.
The restaurant improvements are part of the larger $100-million redevelopment program of Lever House, built in 1952 as the headquarters of Lever Brothers. The redevelopment, which began in 2022, will fully modernize and restore the 22-story, 260,000-square-foot tower along with its ground-level public plaza, lobby and 15,000-square-foot outdoor terrace spaces overlooking Park Avenue.
“We are thrilled to continue our relationship with the team at Casa Lever, whose elevated culinary offerings are very much in keeping with the architectural masterpiece they call home,” said Alan Bernstein of WatermanClark.
