Fisher Brothers announced that global fintech firm Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. has signed a 15-year lease covering four full floors at 605 Third Avenue, its 1.1 million-square-foot office tower in Midtown.
Broadridge, an S&P 500 company that provides investor communications, technology services, and data and analytics to the financial services industry, will occupy 85,000 s/f across the 39th through 42nd floor of the 44-story tower starting in January 2020.
Since completing a $25 million capital improvement program in early 2016, Fisher Brothers has secured nearly 400,000 s/f of leases at the tower, which is now 93 percent leased.
“We are pleased to welcome Broadridge to 605 Third Avenue,” said Fisher Brothers partner Ken Fisher. “Our leasing successes are a testament to the enduring strength of Midtown and a validation of our efforts to modernize the property through the lobby renovation.”
Designed by David Rockwell and the Rockwell Group, the centerpiece of the renovation project was the creation of a brand new building entrance and a more spacious and inviting lobby.
David Rockwell and the LAB at Rockwell Group worked with Fisher Brothers to install two oversized digital glass windows in the lobby that are designed to function as giant kaleidoscopes and serve as a form of public art.
Fisher Brothers has also partnered with Convene, the office services provider, to create a full-service tenant amenity and conference center at 605 Third Avenue.
Located on the seventh floor, that space will be operated by Convene’s roster of hospitality professionals and feature a variety of meeting areas, a gourmet café, an outdoor terrace and comfortable lounge seating.
Broadridge was represented in the transaction by Paul Amoruso and Michael Ciotta of Oxford and Simpson with legal representation from a Stroock national leasing team that included Ken Theil, Jack Bart and Trevor Adler. Fisher Brothers was represented in-house by Marc Packman and Clark Briffel, as well as by Bruce Mosler, Louis D’Avanzo, Andrew Ross, Michael Baraldi, and Maria Travlos of Cushman & Wakefield.
Originally built by Fisher Brothers in 1963, 605 Third Avenue is certified LEED Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council. Its tenant roster includes Informa, Univision, AECOM, David Hutcher & Citron LLP, and the United Nations Population Fund.
