Davis & Gilbert will relocate from 1740 Broadway in summer 2020. The new lease encompasses the 31st through 34th floors and a portion of the 35th floor.
Davis & Gilbert was represented by Lewis Miller, Scott Gottlieb, Brian Gell and Michael Wellen of CBRE. Building ownership was represented by Robert Steinman, senior vice president at Rudin Management Co.
The new lease was negotiated in-house by Davis & Gilbert partners Robert Karin, Mark Maltz and Glenn Motelson. Rudin was represented by Pamela Leibow and Steven Fenton of Goldfarb & Fleece.
“We are thrilled that Davis & Gilbert has chosen 1675 Broadway for their new Manhattan offices,” said Michael Rudin, senior vice president at Rudin Management Co., the operating arm of Rudin Family holdings. “We believe they will benefit from 1675 Broadway’s outstanding views, state of the art connectivity, convenient access to transportation, and prime location steps from Times Sq. and Central Park.”
“We are very excited about relocating our office headquarters, just a couple of blocks from our current location in Midtown which will keep our many vibrant practice groups in the heart of Manhattan for years to come. Situated on the top floors of 1675 Broadway, the great views and efficient floor plates, coupled with the excellent amenities, a quality landlord we know and respect and central location in the heart of New York City was of the utmost importance when choosing a new location,” said Mark Maltz, co-chair of Davis & Gilbert’s Real Estate Practice.”
