“They’re doing some work at the race track at the Meadowlands,” Mr. Ciminelli noted. “They’re looking to go after some more city-wide business.”

The lease was signed last month and LPCiminelli is expected to occupy its space in the fall of this year following a build out by the landlord, a partnership between Jamestown Properties and Murray Hill Properties.

“It was a pleasure working with Jamestown, they’re a great landlord to work on a deal with and handled the process fantastically,” Mr. Ciminelli said. “It’s rare for the landlord to offer a turnkey on a five-year deal.”

Built in 1969, the 39-story building at 1250 Broadway offers floor plates ranging from 15,000 to 26,500 square feet.  Last month, office provider Regus leased the building’s entire 15,356-square-foot 36th floor.

Mr. Ciminelli and David Falk of NGKF represented the tenant. The landlord was represented by Mitchell Arkin, Peter Alden and Michael Blanchard of Cushman & Wakefield.
