Barbara Winter and Bill Korchak of Jones Lang LaSalle represented owner Deka Immobilien, a German real estate investment fund, in all seven transactions.

“Since acquiring 19 West 44th Street several years ago, Deka Immobilien has invested significant resources in a major upgrade of the building,” Winter said in a release. “Tenants from a diverse range of industries have been attracted by the improvements and its excellent location.”

Communications Media was represented by Albert Duryea and Tina Duryea of New York Realty Group, Science Friday by Cresa New York’s Michael Plavin, Forst by Charles Lawrence of Lawrence Real Estate Enterprises and Kyobo by First New York Realty Brokers’ Alexander Schwartz.
