RKF Realty is increasing the staff of its New York office by a third and opening its first international branches, in London and Toronto.

The retail leasing firm expects to spend $5 million on adding 20 more brokers to its office of 60 in Manhattan and in expanding its footprint to global markets, the Wall Street Journal reported. RKF plans to share office space costs and hire local brokers in Toronto. In London, the brokerage is joining forces with a British firm, the Journal said.

RKF has seven offices in the U.S., including Miami and Los Angeles.

The firm represented Club Monaco in a 16,000-square-foot lease at 536 Broadway and Fairway Market in a 37,000-square-foot lease at West 26th Street and Sixth Avenue, the newspaper said. [WSJ]Mark Maurer
