Sony is shopping around for a new office, with an eye on 666 Fifth Avenue, between 52nd and 53rd streets, the New York Post reported.

The Chetrit Group acquired the Sony Building with a three-year leaseback for $1.1 billion earlier this year, as previously reported. CBRE’s Mary Ann Tighe and Gregory Tosko signed on in March to assist the electronics titan in finding a 550,000-square-foot space.

Its current space is 850,000 square feet.

Citibank, whose name adorns the top of the 41-story Fifth Avenue tower, has 300,000 square feet available through mid-2014. Vornado Realty Trust and Kushner Companies co-own the Class A building.

Sony is also looking at 225 and 233 Park Avenue South, 1 and 11 Madison avenues and One and Four World Trade Centers, the newspaper said. [NYP, 3rd item]Mark Maurer
