PRESS RELEASE: Avison Young Named Exclusive Leasing Agent for Brause Realty's 21 West 38th Street November 16, 2020

New York – Avison Young’s New York office has been named the exclusive leasing agent for 21 West 38th Street, an 80,000-square foot, 17-floor office building located off Fifth Avenue near Bryant Park.

An Avison Young team led by Todd Korren, Principal, along with Associates Matthew Pynn and Rachel Rosenfeld, will handle leasing efforts on behalf of the building’s owner, Brause Realty Inc.

At 21 West 38th Street, Brause Realty Inc. is dedicated to prioritizing the health and wellness of its tenants in the COVID-19 environment by offering features that include full floor spaces; private bathrooms; dedicated, tenant-controlled HVAC systems; and self-cleaning elevator buttons which utilize NanoSeptic technology.

“The virtually column free floors at 21 West 38th Street have operable windows on three sides and are ideal for a variety of safety-conscious tenants seeking a full floor presence, including those in the TAMI sector, innovation and design, and professional services,” said Korren.  “Amazon recently purchased Lord & Taylor’s flagship building on the corner of West 38th Street and Fifth Avenue, a clear indication that the tech sector is aggressively moving into this area which bodes well for 21 West 38th Street’s leasing prospects.”  

Avison Young’s long-standing relationship with the building’s ownership and extensive experience with this asset class, combined with a track record of success throughout various market cycles, served the firm well in securing this coveted assignment.

21 West 38th Street sits in the middle of Manhattan’s “Commuter Triangle” putting it within easy walking distance to Grand Central Terminal, Penn Station, the Port Authority Bus Terminal, as well as multiple subway lines.  Nearby popular attractions include The New York Public Library, Bryant Park and many hotels and restaurants.
