Financial technologies company Curex Group Holdings has renewed and expanded its headquarters lease at 120 West 45th Street (aka Tower 45) in the Grand Central submarket for a combined 22,925 square feet of space.
The lease covers the entire 22nd floor and 5,003 square feet of expansion space on the 23rd floor.
Dirk Hrobsky of DTZ Americas represented Curex in the transaction, while David Kaufman, with landlord SL Green, represented his firm in house.
SL Green executive vice president and director of leasing Steven Durels said in a written statement announcing the deal that the property’s easy access to Grand Central Terminal, Manhattan views and recent common area upgrades make it a “magnet for high profile companies.”
The firm recently completed a capital improvement program at the 40-story, 397,188-square-foot boutique office property, which included a new lobby, elevator cabs, common corridors and bathrooms. The firm also renovated the outdoor plaza, which features a hanging lit sculpture and water wall.
Major tenants in the building include Becher Carlson Holdings, Bobby Van’s Grill, City National Bank, D.E. Shaw & Co., DE Shaw Research, Pzena Investments, Schrodinger Inc. and Scott Rudin Productions.
