Telemedicine Tenant Inks Full-Floor Lease with Kaufman in Midtown South

LifeMD, Inc., a direct-to-patient telemedicine company, signed a 7,500-square-foot lease at the Kaufman Organization’s 236 Fifth Ave. The company will occupy the entire fourth floor of the Midtown South Office tower for its general, administrative and executive offices. 

“LifeMD, Inc. is the latest of many innovative, life science companies we have attracted to our Midtown South portfolio, and we predict we will continue to see a demand for office space from this type of tenant,” said Grant Greenspan, principal of Kaufman. “The property is in a prime location and offers convenient amenities including concierge and doorman services as well as advanced technology that will further attract like-minded companies.” 

Greenspan and Jared Sternberg of Kaufman represented ownership in leasing negotiations, while Newmark’s Joshua Berg represented LifeMD. 236 Fifth is an 11-story building built in 1907 and renovated in 2018 after the Kaufman Organization acquired it.
