George Comfort & Sons and RGC Longview have tapped Eastdil Secured to market Worldwide Plaza, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Worldwide Plaza, located at 825 Eighth Avenue between 49th and 50th streets, measures 1.8 million square feet and is now roughly 95 percent occupied. George Comfort and RGC purchased the half-vacant building for about $600 million in 2009 — a discounted price from the $1.74 billion that Harry Macklowe paid for it in 2007.

As The Real Deal first reported, Eastdil Secured recently brokered a deal for the sale of a Long Island City office building on behalf of the sellers. Eastdil was also tapped to market a 49 to 80 percent share of 521 Fifth Avenue. [WSJ]
