Brause Realty has signed global property management firm Beekman Real Estate Investment Management to a five-year lease at its 21-story Midtown East office building at 52 Vanderbilt Avenue.

Beekman REIM currently occupies an office at 655 Third Avenue, also near Grand Central Terminal. Transwestern managing director John Grotto represented the firm in the deal. Other tenants in the 190,000-square-foot tower, between 44th and 45th streets, include song-identification app Shazam Media Services and social media optimizer SocialFlow.

Shazam signed for more than 9,000 square feet in September, while SocialFlow took roughly the same-size space in June, as The Real Deal reported. [NYO]Mark Maurer
