“450-460 Park Ave. South has proven to be an excellent investment for the Moinian Group,” said Appel. “The 95% leased property offers open and airy office space that is highly desirable to current tenants and is located within one of the hottest submarkets in the nation convenient to both Grand Central and Penn Station. We are pleased to negotiate new financing for the property, which stands as an important component of the Moinian Group’s portfolio.”
