Tishman Speyer has launched a new amenity-booking app called Zo that allows office tenants in the landlord’s buildings to access a suite of perks, including recreational pig petting at 30 Rock.

The app, which will spread to 8 of Tishman’s 10 New York commercial properties by the end of the month, is the latest foray by a Manhattan landlord into the realm of extended amenities to help compete for tenants, Bloomberg reported.

Brookfield Property Partners and Silverstein Properties use the app hOM, and SL Green Realty has its own SL Living Green. Landlords are trying to land and retain tenants as the threat of an office-space glut looms.

“It’s all about making tenants happier, making buildings stickier” and mitigating turnover, said MetaProp co-founder Zach Aarons.

Zo, which Tishman created in-house, will spread to most of its U.S. properties by the end of the year and eventually to its global portfolio. Many of the services come with a cost, and Tishman has negotiated rates for some groups. [Bloomberg]Rich Bockmann
