Rubenstein Partners Establishes NYC Base

Having been an active investor in New York City office property for several years, Rubenstein Partners is now a tenant as well. The Philadelphia-based investment manager has opened its New York offices at 515 Madison Ave., occupying the tower’s entire 42nd floor.

“Opening our doors at 515 Madison marks the latest step in the firm’s long-term expansion strategy,” said Rubenstein Partners founder David Rubenstein. “Our New York office supports enhanced deal sourcing ability in the New York region by putting boots on the ground in this key target market, and also provides outstanding access to national and global capital markets as we grow our capital formation team.”

Along with the firm’s New York acquisitions team headed by recent hire Robert Andrews, who joined from RXR Realty in September 2017, the 515 Madison offices will house senior staff including David Ballard, Fred Harmeyer, Ferhat Guven, Jeff Fronek and Jeremiah Kane.
