Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors Relocates to 120 Broadway

Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors (RPA) is relocating its New York headquarters from Midtown to Silverstein Properties’ 120 Broadway in Lower Manhattan. The global nonprofit has signed a 10-year, 14,000-square-foot lease and is slated to occupy part of the 34th floor in the second quarter of 2023. 

“We are proud to welcome Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors to 120 Broadway,” said Harlan Strader III, VP of leasing at Silverstein Properties. “This year we have seen growing interest in Lower Manhattan as one of the city’s key live-work-play destinations. The building has benefited from the ongoing migration of people and companies moving downtown—leading all pre-war vintage office stock in 2022 leasing activity thanks to a combination of transformative capital investment, hotel-quality amenities, and its central location near major transit hubs.” 

Stradar represented ownership in leasing negotiations. Ellen Herman and KJ Lee of JLL represented RPA.
