CBRE Group, Inc. today (Wednesday) announced that it has represented Drake Design Associates in its 4,000 s/f lease of the entire 12th floor of 67 Irving Place.
Drake Design Associates is the namesake design firm of renowned interior designer Jamie Drake, who has completed countless interiors for the likes of Madonna and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, including the renovation of Gracie Mansion and various rooms at City Hall.
