A fire broke out at the Feil Organization’s 570 Lexington Avenue — the home of the Real Estate board of New York — on Monday afternoon, leaving two people injured.

The fire started on the 23rd floor of 570 Lexington Avenue, and 126 fire and emergency services personnel responded, according to Bloomberg. Several law offices appear to have space on the 23rd floor. The two injured people refused medical attention.

The Feil Organization bought the 50-story tower more than a decade ago from the Mendik Company. It was built in 1931 and today is known as the GE Building. Other tenants include UrbanSpace food court and Schnippers. REBNY leases space on the second floor of the building.

In early 2018, Feil landed a $180 million refinancing for the property. [Bloomberg] – Eddie Small
