Okada & Co. Tapped to Lease Three Manhattan Office Properties

Okada & Company, a New York City-based commercial real estate advisory and development company, has been hired to spearhead leasing efforts for three separate buildings in Manhattan representing nearly 400,000 square feet of office space. 

Among the landlords that have tapped Okada & Company is Thor Equities, which hired the firm as the leasing agent for 25 W. 39th St., a historic building constructed in 1907 as a gift from Andrew Carnegie to The Engineers Society. 

In addition, Okada & Company was selected to represent Mehra Properties’ building at 121 W. 27th St., a 12-story 110,000-square-foot office property in Chelsea. The firm was also appointed to represent 29 W. 36th St., a 95,000-square-foot building. 

“We are thrilled to represent some of New York City’s most prominent landlords and their office space, especially during this time of rapid change in the office environment,” said Chris Okada, CEO of Okada & Company.
