Mr. Levy is the exclusive broker for 48 West 37th Street and represented both parties in the transaction, Murphy Burnham & Buttrick and Forty Eight Thirty Seven Associates.
The asking rent was set at $38 per square foot for the office space. The building, which spans 18 stories and 170,000 square feet, ranges in asking rent from mid to high $30s per square foot with average floor-plates around 9,000 square feet.
