MetLife, Beacon Capital look to sell 85 Broad
MetLife and Beacon Capital Partners are looking to sell the former Goldman Sachs headquarters at 85 Broad Street.
The owners hired Eastdil Secured [TRDataCustom] to market the 1.1 million-square-foot building, which is 91 percent occupied, according to Real Estate Alert, which noted the property is valued at up to $700 million.
Eastdil has started preliminary discussions with investors, and is expected to kick off a sales campaign soon.
Goldman developed the 30-story building as its headquarters in 1983, and MetLife bought it two years later for $74.4 million. Beacon Capital bought a 50-percent stake in the property in a deal that valued it at $350 million in 2014, when the building was half empty.
Eastdil Secured is also bringing to market the 1.8 million-square-foot One Worldwide Plaza in Midtown. – Rich Bockmann
