“There has been overwhelming interest in the centrally located property at 875 Sixth Ave. over the past few months, whether that’s from existing tenants who would like to expand within the building, those who are happy with their current space and want to secure it for the coming years, or tenants who are completely new to the building,” said Braus. “Midtown South is becoming increasingly popular with office tenants across industries and the recent renovations at this building have certainly boosted leasing activity.”
875 Sixth Ave. was renovated with an updated lobby as well as new elevators and windows. The storefronts will be completely redone by the end of the year.
