New York, NY – The New York office for Avison Young has arranged a 10-year, 7,100-square-foot lease on the 34th Floor of 100 Park Avenue that will be used as a Midtown office and conference center for top ranked law firm Cozen O’Connor.
This lease follows the 15-year, 77,000-square-foot office lease Avison Young negotiated last year for Cozen O’Connor on the entire 55th floor and a portion of the 56th floor at 3 World Trade Center. The prestigious firm will be consolidating its two offices - Midtown at 277 Park Avenue and Downtown at 45 Broadwayat 3 World Trade Center and maintaining a conference center in Midtown at 100 Park Avenue.
Avison Young Principal and Tri-State President Arthur Mirante along with Principal Michael Gottlieb and Senior Director Jennifer Ogden in New York, Principal and Managing Director David Fahey in Philadelphia, and Principal Jeff Lindenmeyer in Chicago, represented Cozen O’Connor. SL Green was represented in-house by Caitlin Cole, Jeremy Bier and Larry Swiger, and by Cushman & Wakefield brokers Justin Royce and Connor Daugstrup.
“With the relocation and consolidation of Cozen O’Connor’s Midtown and Downtown offices to 3 World Trade Center, the firm felt it was important to maintain a Midtown location that will include multiple conference rooms and offices for visiting attorneys,” Mirante said. “This is an ideal space for a conference center, located near the top of the tower and offering superior light and air.”
Gottlieb continued, “For its Midtown office, Cozen O’Connor wanted a prominent presence in a prestigious Class A building near Grand Central, and 100 Park Avenue met that criteria. The office was especially attractive because SL Green is opening a luxury amenity center in the building that will include additional conference and event space.”
