SL Green along with PGIM Real Estate bought the 36-story, 903,000-square-foot building in 2000. The group finished a redevelopment of the property in 2008.

Tenants include AECOM Tishman, Wells Fargo Capital Finance and Aetna. In May, law firm Cozen O’Connor leased 7,100 square feet on the building’s 34th floor. Amenities include lounge areas, a golf simulator, game rooms and a wellness center.

Aareal Capital Corporation, which is the New York-based affiliate of German financier Aareal Bank, also refinanced SL Green’s News Building last summer along with Credit Agricole and Citi with a $510 million loan.
