Colliers International has arranged a 59,323 s/f renewal on behalf of law firm Richards Kibbe & Orbe LLP, which will continue to occupy its headquarters space at 200 Liberty Street, part of the Brookfield Place complex in Lower Manhattan.
Richards Kibbe & Orbe (RK&O) serves the financial and business communities and has offices in New York City, Washington, DC, and London. The firm occupies the entire 28th and 29th floors at 200 Liberty Street. The entire complex is owned and operated by Brookfield Office Properties.
“The floor plate, location, and renovation to the Brookfield Place complex provide RK&O with an excellent platform to continue the firm’s prosperity well into the future,” said Ted Rotante, an Executive Managing Director with Colliers International, who arranged the renewal on behalf of RK&O. “Brookfield’s redesign of the retail, dining, and public spaces in Brookfield Place, when combined with the outdoor space, retail and transportation at the World Trade Center campus, offer a plethora of amenities for RK&O’s clients and employees.”
David Cheikin and Christopher Zizza of Brookfield Office Properties represented the landlord in-house in the transaction.
