The deal is for the entire 11th and 12th floors and part of the 14th floor at the 43-story property, which is between West 38th and West 39th Streets in the Garment District. The asking rent in the 10-year deal was $65 per square foot, as The Real Deal reported.

Avison Young’s Anthony LoPresti, Michael Gottlieb and David Fahey handled the deal for Comcast, while CBRE’s Peter Turchin, Gregg Rothkin, Brett Shannon, Ben Fastenberg, Keith Caggiano and Ross Zimbalist represented the landlord.

An Avison Young spokesman declined to comment, as did a CBRE spokeswoman. Representatives for Comcast also did not return a request seeking comment.

It was not immediately clear if Comcast is establishing a new office or moving employees from an existing location. The company is “reshuffling” space in its New York City portfolio, according to TRD.
