Jack Resnick & Sons has selected Cushman & Wakefield as the exclusive leasing agent for One Seaport Plaza at 199 Water Street, it was announced today.
A C&W team comprised of John Cefaly, Andrew Peretz, Robert Constable, Gregory Scott, Joseph Harkins and Courtney Adham will work alongside Resnick’s leasing team, led by Brett Greenberg and Dennis Brady.
“One Seaport Plaza is exceptional in the quality of its design and site configuration, with its expansive near column-free spacing providing efficient densities and abundant natural light that can accommodate the most stringent contemporary or traditional uses,” said Mr. Cefaly, executive vice chairman, in a prepared statement.
One Seaport Plaza is currently undergoing a lobby and elevator modernization program which includes infrastructure enhancements and added amenities. The building boasts 70,000 square feet of availability on the 14th and 15th floors. A further 300,000 square foot block of availability in the building’s high rise is anticipated to be available shortly.
“Cushman & Wakefield was the broker when we purchased the land and was our rental agent when we opened 199 Water in 1984; they played an integral role in the initial successful lease up,” said Burt Resnick, chief executive officer of Jack Resnick & Sons. “With a large block of leases expiring at the end of 2014 we look forward to working with them again.”
The 35-story, 1.1 million-square-foot office tower was built by Jack Resnick & Sons in 1984. Major tenants at the property include AON Service Corp., BGC Partners and Tullett Prebon Americas.
C&W did not immediately return requests for comment. Neither Mr. Greenberg nor Mr. Brady of Jack Resnick & Sons could be immediately reached.
