The Moinian Group and Thor Equities have announced the addition of four new tenants, totaling over 40,000 s/f, to 245 Fifth Avenue, a 26-story, 303,000 s/f Class A trophy office tower near Madison Square Park.
“245 Fifth Avenue is the new destination for tech, media, entertainment and creative firms,” said Gregg Weiser, Moinian’s senior vice president and director of leasing.
“The building is ideally located in the new thriving NoMad community, home to upscale businesses, trendy restaurants, and nightspots. When you add our recently launched capital improvement program and pre-built leasing options, momentum is on our side to complete our leasing program. Our focus is the four tower floors which can be leased individually or to one tenant”.
