Hitachi Data Systems is relocating to 24,250 square feet at H.J. Kalikow & Company‘s 101 Park Avenue, a source with intimate knowledge of the deal told Commercial Observer. The information technologies, services and solutions provider will be taking the entire 10th floor in the 629-foot-tall building between East 40th and East 41st Streets. The asking rents were in the high-$70s/low-$80s per square foot.
JLL‘s Alexander Chudnoff and Scott Vinett represented Hitachi in the 11-year deal and Cushman & Wakefield‘s John Cefaly and Augustus Field negotiated on behalf of HJ Kalikow. Spokespeople for the brokers did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Hitachi Data Systems, which will be moving from 90 Park Avenue, was established in 1989 as a joint venture between Hitachi, Ltd., and Electronic Data Systems Corporation, and became a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd., headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, in 1999, according to the company’s website.
