Nonprofit Oliver Scholars has signed a lease to relocate its offices to the Bankers Trust Building at 14 Wall Street

Oliver Scholars Moves Offices to Bankers Trust Building

Oliver Scholars, a New York City-based nonprofit organization, has inked a 12,832-square-foot office lease at the Bankers Trust Building, located at 14 Wall St. in Lower Manhattan’s Financial District. The tenant will relocate its offices from nearby 80 Maiden Ln. to part of the 17th floor of 14 Wall St.  
The CBRE team of Bradley Gerla and Mike Rizzo heads up the marketing efforts for the 1.1-million-square-foot office tower and represented the ownership, Roza 14W LLC, in lease negotiations. Compass’ Suzanne Sunshine represented Oliver Scholars. 

“Given the property’s historical significance as well as ownership’s commitment to tenant service and providing the highest-quality space in the Financial District, 14 Wall St. has become one of Downtown’s most sought-after business addresses,” said Gerla. “We are thrilled we were able to negotiate a long-term lease with such an important nonprofit organization like Oliver Scholars.”
