Global Holdings has selected JLL as the exclusive office leasing agent for its 773,000 s/f skyscraper at 1250 Broadway that the conglomerate has re-named Nomad Tower.
Global Holdings, a real estate firm headed by Monaco shipping executive Eyal Ofer, bought the 39-story Koreatown office building for $565 million from Jamestown last year.
Now the company has announced it will spend $80 million on a ‘Love Your Workplaceʼ repositioning that will include expanded amenity spaces, tenant meeting spaces, a retail expansion, bike access, tenant fitness opportunities, and complete lobby enhancement and repositioning.

“Nomad Tower offers tenants superior space opportunities in an amenity filled tower with enviable access to the dynamic lifestyle in the surrounding neighborhood,” Glickman said.
“The comprehensive repositioning will further enhance the experience for tenants, who already enjoy abundant restaurants, entertainment options and access to all transportation options.”
