NEW YORK, 04 August 2022
New-York Based Asset Management Firm to Occupy Over 25,000 Square Feet of Space Within Redeveloped Class A Office Tower, Doubling Office Footprint
Brookfield Properties today announced that 400 Capital Management LLC, an alternative credit asset manager specializing in structured credit with over $5.7 billion of assets under management, has signed a lease within its modernized, state-of-the-art office tower at 660 Fifth Avenue in Midtown Manhattan. The Firm will occupy 25,572 square feet on the 27th floor beginning August 2024. In relocating from its current office in Midtown, 400 Capital Management will more than double the size of its office footprint at 660 Fifth Avenue.
“Brookfield Properties’ investment to modernize 660 Fifth Avenue has created a world-class, reimagined commercial building in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, providing an unmatched opportunity for tenants when it comes to workplace experience and location,” said Duncan McCuaig, Executive Vice President, Leasing, Brookfield Properties. “We are thrilled to welcome 400 Capital Management to 660 Fifth Avenue, a building designed to foster and support the firm’s innovative culture and desire to grow.”
“400 Capital is excited to relocate to new office space which will achieve LEED certification and benefit from Brookfield’s expansive interior and exterior renovations,” said Bill Sanders, Partner, President and COO of 400 Capital Management. “Fundamental workplace needs have shifted dramatically in recent years, and as a firm with plans to continue to grow we recognize the value that accessible, modernized, high-quality space provides for collaboration, business development, recruitment and so much more.”
The lease announcement comes as Brookfield Properties nears completion of a $400 million redevelopment of the building. The redesigned tower features a brand-new lobby, elevators, state-of-the-art mechanical systems, upgraded infrastructure, and a stunning new façade reclad in 11×19 foot single-pane glass units, the largest ever used on a redevelopment in New York City. In May 2022, financial service firm Macquarie Group signed a lease as the building’s anchor tenant for 221,754 square feet across six floors of the tower.
A progressive 39-story office building, 660 Fifth Avenue was originally built in 1957. Brookfield Properties acquired the building in 2018 and commenced redevelopment in 2019 under the design of renowned architecture firm Kohn Pedersen Fox. 660 Fifth Avenue is located in the heart of Midtown Manhattan between 52nd and 53rd Streets.
David Hollander, Vice Chairman and Brad Auerbach, Senior Vice President of CBRE brokered the deal on behalf of 400 Capital.
Brookfield Properties was represented in-house by Duncan McCuaig, Dave Capera, and PJ Massey, as well as Bruce Mosler, Josh Kuriloff, Ethan Silverstein, John Santora, Matthias Li, Nicholas Dysenchuk, and Howard Cross of Cushman & Wakefield.
