Esteemed Architecture Firm, Deborah Berke Partners, Moving Headquarters to rudin’s 41 Madison

 Rudin, a full-service real estate organization and one of New York City’s largest private owners, operators and developers of best-in-class real estate, announced today that it has completed a new lease with lauded architectural firm, Deborah Berke Partners, at 41 Madison Avenue, Rudin’s recently renovated office tower in the heart of Midtown South’s Flatiron District overlooking Madison Square Park.

Deborah Berke Partners will relocate its headquarters to 13,331 square feet of space spanning the entire 17th floor of 41 Madison. The New York-based practice specializes in designing true-to-place and life enriching projects for institutional, residential, and commercial clients. The firm will move from its current offices at 220 Fifth Avenue in summer 2023 as part of a 10-year lease.

With this agreement, Rudin has now completed four leases, totaling 39,600 square feet, at 41 Madison over the past two months alone.

“We are thrilled to welcome the creative team from Deborah Berke Partners to 41 Madison,” said Mehul J. Patel, Senior Vice President, Head of Commercial Office at Rudin.  “Our recent leasing successes are indicative of the market’s continued demand for best-in-class work environments in dynamic locations.”

Rudin’s recently completed transformation of the building included enhancements to its public areas including the lobby, lounge, and event and conference space. The reimagined lobby now features marble flooring, pearlescent glass wall panels and a luminous ceiling lit by energy-efficient LEDs to complement the original book-matched Travertine wall panels that remain on the elevator cores. It also includes an elegant glass entrance, a new reception area and redesigned elevator cabs.

Other major tenants at 41 Madison include The Gersh Agency, Water Island Capital, The Henry Luce Foundation and Rosenthal Wedgwood. It is also home to Mark’s Off Madison, a restaurant and bakery from renowned celebrity chef Mark Strausman, the creator of Freds at Barneys New York.

Designed by Emery Roth & Sons and opened in 1974, 41 Madison is a 42-story, 560,000 square-foot modern glass and steel building. The building is WiredScore Platinum and utilizes Nantum OS, the world’s most advanced building operating system. Nantum OS is the flagship product of Prescriptive Data, a privately held smart building automation company focused on using artificial intelligence to improve efficiency, decrease carbon emissions and optimize tenant comfort.

All tenants at 41 Madison have access to MEET on Madison from MEET Hospitality, a meeting and event venue that redefines the office workspace and offers customized serviced events.

Deborah Berke Partners was represented by Andrew Weiss of Signature Partners. Rudin was represented in-house by Senior Vice President, Robert Steinman on the transaction.
