Savanna Closes on NoMad Office/Retail, Plans Repositioning

Savanna has finalized its acquisition of 48 W. 25th St., a 12-story, 126,256-square-foot office and retail building in NoMad. Deal terms weren’t disclosed, but he New York Post earlier reported that the circa-1920 property was in contract for about $100 million.

The locally-based investment manager acquired the property from a longtime family owner. The seller was represented by the Cushman & Wakefield team of Adam Spies, Adam Doneger and Josh King. Cushman & Wakefield’s Gideon Gil represented Savanna in lining up financing from Mesa West.

Savanna plans a $21-million capital improvement and leasing campaign. Cushman & Wakefield’s Bruce Mosler and Ethan Silverstein will head up leasing for the property.

“48 W. 25th is situated at the epicenter of one of Manhattan’s most exciting neighborhoods,” said Savanna’s Andrew Kurd. “This exceptional location, along with our planned capital improvements, will make this property a true standout for a wide range of tenants.”
