Dr. Samadi, a urologic surgeon trained in oncology and robotic surgery, performed the first robotic prostate cancer surgery at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital and has performed over 3,800 prostate surgeries. Dr. Samadi has made a number of television appearances, including as a member of the Fox Medical A-team panel, and will use the 485 Madison Avenue office for patient consultations.
Built in 1929, the 25-story building at 485 Madison Avenue was acquired by Jack Resnick & Sons in 1976. Located in the Plaza District on the corner of 52nd Street, the building hosts a number of high profile tenants including McKinsey & Company and Univision Radio.
As reported by The Commercial Observer, Univision renewed and expanded by 5,500 square feet at 485 Madison Avenue late last year, growing its footprint to 21,234 square feet.
The building’s entire 10,520-square-foot 18th floor is available, though a lease on the space is pending.
