Electronics giant Samsung has signed for all 55,000 square feet of a six-story Meatpacking District building developed by Thor Equities and Taconic Investment Partners.
The property at 837 Washington Street, between Little West 12th and 13th streets, would house a marketing center and customer services space. Facebook, Google and Ferrari were also eyeing a full-building lease.
Thor owns an 80 percent stake in the building, which has a two-story brick façade and four-story glass and steel section. The development includes more than 7,000 square feet of outdoor space on the second and third floors.
“While the building is special inside, this is a special neighborhood and you want to capture the neighborhood outside,” Joseph Sitt of Thor told the Wall Street Journal. [WSJ] — Mark Maurer
