Lenox Hill Hospital/North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System has signed a 15-year renewal for 70,434 square feet at 110 East 59th Street. Asking rents were in the $70s.
“They had a lease that had a little bit of term left to go, but they want to do some work in the space, so they just wanted to put a little bit more term on the lease,” Dennis Brady, executive managing director at Jack Resnick & Sons, the landlord, told The Commercial Observer.
The tenants, physicians associated with Lenox Hill Hospital, which was acquired by North Shore-LIJ in 2010, have been in the building for approximately 15 years and will continue to occupy the 8th, 9th and 10th floors of the 37-story building.
“As North Shore-LIJ expands its New York City presence, we are pleased that 110 East 59th Street will remain a key Manhattan location for this highly respected healthcare organization,” added Jonathan Resnick, President of Jack Resnick & Sons, in a prepared statement.
The 500,000-square-foot Class A building also counts Cantor Fitzgerald, Estee Lauder and IMAX Corporation among its tenants. The landlord is currently marketing a 3,400-square-foot space in the tower portion of the property, where asking rents are $110 per square foot.
Mr. Brady represented the landlord in the transaction. The tenant was represented by Brian Waterman and Brent Ozarowski of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank.
