Brookfield Property Partners announced that it has signed a 10 year lease for 117,000 s/f to Jane Street at 250 Vesey Street, one of the five office towers of the Brookfield Place complex in downtown Manhattan.
Jane Street is a quantitative trading firm with a focus on technology. The firm was represented by Cushman & Wakefield’s Rob Lowe and Augustus Field. Brookfield was represented in-house by Jerry Larkin, Dave Cheikin and Alex Liscio.
Jane Street will join a new roster of tenants at Brookfield Place that include Time Inc., the College Board and Institute of Culinary Education.
Brookfield has signed over 2.7 million square feet of office, retail and restaurant leases in Brookfield Place during the last 12 months.
Brookfield Place, Downtown’s most significant retail, culinary and office redevelopment in a generation, will be fully completed in 2015.
The complex recently opened Hudson Eats, a collection of 14 fast-casual eateries with 600 seats overlooking the Hudson River. To follow will be six new sit-down restaurants, a waterfront marketplace, and a curated luxury fashion collection.
A unique collection of lifestyle amenities will service the area’s office workers and residents, including an Equinox fitness club, and Bright Horizons childcare solutions, among others.
The retail and dining renovations are complemented by a new glass pavilion entrance on West Street, which connects to the World Trade Center transit hub that opened to the public in October 2013.
