Cushman & Wakefield announced today that the real estate services firm has been named the exclusive leasing agent for 1177 Avenue of the Americas, a 47-story, amenity-rich office skyscraper in Midtown Manhattan.
A Cushman & Wakefield team consisting of Bruce Mosler, Lou D’Avanzo, Ethan Silverstein, Anthony LoPresti and Caroline Collins will be marketing leasing opportunities on behalf of the landlord, Silverstein Properties.

These services are all accessible to tenants via a dedicated app.
