Marx Realty (MNPP) announced that investment management firm Rubric Capital signed a 5,800 s/f, seven-year lease on the 16th floor at 10 Grand Central.
Rubric Capital secured the last of the Marx Realty’s upscale pre-built suites at 10 Grand Central as the firm begins to attract companies to fill 25,000s/f of its Penthouse Collection being built out on the 32nd-36th floors.
“We are thrilled to welcome Rubric Capital to 10 Grand Central,” said Craig Deitelzweig, president and CEO of Marx Realty.
“This hedge fund joins a truly remarkable roster of tenants that includes well-known firms representing industries ranging from media and technology to financial and business service entities. The repositioning continues to draw high-profile tenants attracted to 10 Grand Central’s first-of-its-kind hospitality-infused aesthetic.”
Marx Realty has signed 184,000 s/f of new leases since announcing the building’s repositioning in mid-2018. Since the announcement, occupancy has increased from 78 percent to 95 percent.
