Clarion Partners and MHP Real Estate Services announced that they have signed the first new tenant for 180 Maiden Lane since the joint venture acquired the property in January.
Holborn Corporation, a reinsurance broker, has leased 25,000 s/f in the building, which is being re-imagined as a cutting edge vertical campus for companies looking to attract the best talent across a broad range of industries including financial services, technology, advertising, media, and information (TAMI).
Currently headquartered at 88 Pine Street, Holborn is expected to take occupancy of the space in late 2015. CBRE represented Holborn in the transaction.
180 Maiden Lane is in the midst of a $28 million renovation that will include public plaza upgrades with a new retail kiosk, enhanced security, renovated full-service cafeteria, fitness studio with locker rooms and a new conference center
“ Downtown Manhattan is in the midst of a substantial renaissance,” said Tara Stacom at Cushman & Wakefield, co-leasing agent for the building with MHP. “The highly amenitized building’s easy access to both Pier 15 on the East River and the redeveloping South Street Seaport neighborhood make this a compelling location for tenants looking to attract the highest quality workforce.”
