“It’s a new location in Downtown Manhattan for Raymond James,” Wheeler said.

The structure is part of the five-building, 8.5-million-square-foot Brookfield Place complex, which is 97 percent occupied, Wheeler said. The tenant mix has diversified over the last three years from exclusively the worlds of finance, insurance and real estate.

“It’s a cross section now, not just the FIRE sector,” Wheeler said.

The Associated Press famously took 170,000 square feet at the building, as CO previously reported. Other tenants include Santander Bank and GfK market research firm.

Cushman & Wakefield’s Samuel Clark and Jonathan B. Fein represented the tenant in the Raymond James deal. They didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment via a spokesman.
