Bank of China to occupy 40 percent of 7 Bryant Park

Remaining 280K sf is up for grabs

Bank of China is readying to move into Hines Development and JPMorgan’s nearly completed 7 Bryant Park, but contrary to what was previously expected, the banking giant will be occupying only 40 percent of the tower.

The bank bought the 30-story, 471,000-square-foot property for a reported price of nearly $600 million at the end of last year, according to the New York Post. The deal is for a long-term leasehold.

A new JLL report shows that about 60 percent of that space will be up for lease, adding to Midtown’s Class A vacancy. The figure makes sense given that Bank of China was initially in talks to be a flagship tenant occupying just a portion of the tower, before deciding to acquire the building.
