SL Green CEO Marc Holliday and 600 Lexington Avenue

SL Green has come out with an official announcement of its 600 Lexington Avenue takeover from a joint venture led by Hines US Core Office Fund for $193 million, or $636 per square foot. The price was previously reported at under $180 million. Under the terms of the deal, SL Green will assume $49.85 million of debt on the 36-story office tower, for which the 5.74 percent interest-only loan matures in March 2014. The building is currently 93.6 percent leased, though 54 percent of its space will become available over the next three years. “We moved aggressively to lock up this opportunity, and there exists a strong likelihood that we will be able to attract a joint venture partner on this asset,” said CEO Marc Holliday. The city’s largest landlord has been on somewhat of an acquisition tear lately. The company purchased 100 Church Street at a foreclosure auction earlier this year and recently snatched up the debt on Macklowe Properties’ 510 Madison, on which it is now trying — with some difficulty — to foreclose.
