“The cache of Fifth Ave., paired with the appeal of our modernized office space, continues to attract top international companies like Summit Golf Brands, Inc. looking to expand and evolve its presence in the heart of New York City,” said Joseph P. Day Realty senior vice president Richard Brickell.
Summit Golf Brands signed a lease to occupy the entire 7,300 s/f ninth floor for 10 years beginning September 1st. Brickell represented ownership in the deal. Alex Leopold and David Falk of Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) represented Summit Golf Brands. The company relocated from 8 West 40th St.
