Christopher Okada, founder and president of Okada & Company, along with vice president David Ho represented both the tenant and landlord, Granite Management, in the  lease.

Founded by Besim Kukaj, BKUK Hospitality operates a number of successful eateries, including Gallo Nero in the West VIllage, Limon Jungle in Hell’s Kitchen and Intermezzo, a traditional Italian restaurant in Chelsea.
