For CBRE’s Keith Braddish and Mark Fisher—the two elder statesmen in the firm’s capital markets debt and equity finance division—the more fractured lending environment that has arisen out of the collapse of the CMBS market and the concurrent economic malaise has meant the opportunity to dazzle and shine.
Tech company Stack Exchange has signed for 30,230 square feet of space at Swig Equities’ newly refinanced 110 William Street. The company is taking the entire 27th and 28th floors in the building, which is now 97 percent leased to tenants like the New York City Economic Development Corporation and WB Engineering & Consulting.
Jonathan Dean, a senior vice president and director of commercial leasing for Swig, represented the landlord in-house. Stack Exchange CEO Joel Spolsky wasn’t available to comment, but a rep for the landlord said that the tenant didn’t use an outside broker.
