PBC USA announced the successful completion of its strategic, five-year asset management plan and transformation of its trophy office tower at 452 Fifth Avenue.
The announcement follows two new lease transactions for the final availabilities in the penthouse of the Class-A, 865,000-square-foot office property located across Bryant Park on 40st Street.
The space commanded triple-digit rents and offers uninterrupted, panoramic views of Bryant Park, the Empire State Building and Midtown, as well as the rapidly expanding Financial District. The announcement was made by Eli Elefant, Chief Executive Officer of PBC USA.
According to Elefant, “The completion of these two leases is the final step in realizing our vision and executing our strategy for this trophy asset. We believe there is further upside potential in this asset, as we continue to focus on additional acquisition opportunities in New York City and across the U.S.”
The ownership worked with Paul Glickman, Jonathan Fanuzzi and Michael Higgins of JLL to complete the leasing campaign at the property
