The Borough of Manhattan Community College has committed to another 20 years at Jack Resnick & Sons’ 255 Greenwich Street.
The City University of New York-affiliated school inked a renewal for the 10th through 14th floors of the building, a 167,027-square-foot spread, where it has been a tenant for the past 10 years. Asking rent was around $50 per square foot. Dennis Brady and Brett Greenberg represented the landlord in-house, while Steven Siegel, David Hollander and Richard Levine of CBRE represented CUNY.
“BMCC is an integral part of Downtown New York’s spirit and resiliency,” Burt Resnick, chairman and CEO of Jack Resnick & Sons, said in a statement cited by the New York Observer. “We are delighted that the college has recommitted to 255 Greenwich Street for another two decades.”
Greenberg did not immediately return the Observer’s calls requesting comment.
The 600,000-square-foot office building, formerly dubbed 75 Park Place, was constructed in 1984. The name changed in 2012 to mark the reopening of Greenwich Street through the World Trade Center site. Currently 100 percent occupied, the building will welcome Fairway Market’s first Lower Manhattan location late next year. [NYO] — Julie Strickland
