A Cushman & Wakefield team has been tapped as the exclusive leasing agent for about 100,000 square feet at RXR’s 1330 Sixth Avenue, the New York Observer reported. The space — currently occupied by publishing company Pearson — is slated to be available next January, when Pearson departs and offers up signage opportunity for a company looking to be an anchor tenant. The team is composed of Bruce Mosler, Tara Stacom, Mikael Nahmias, Jared Horowitz, Whitten Morris and Peter Alden. Floors seven through 10, 14, 16 and 17 will be available.

“We want it to be the right image for the right company, and one that takes a meaningful presence in the building,” RXR Realty’s leasing director William Elder told the Observer. “This is a very rare opportunity that allows for top-of-building signage just outside of Times Square.”

The 40-story property underwent $15 million in upgrades in September, which included improvements to retail stores and limestone columns replacing the aluminum on the façade.

As previously reported, Sixth Avenue vacancies could hit a 20-year high as offices move or lay off their workers. [NYO] –Zachary Kussin
