Jordan Berger represented RXR in-house, along with Newmark (NMRK) Knight Frank’s Brian Waterman, Scott Klau, Erik Harris, Zachary Weil and Cole Gendels. CBRE (CBRE)’s Todd Lippman, Jared Isaacson and Alice Fair represented Tempus. 

“The fact that we were able to attract a technology tenant of Tempus‘ caliber in such a challenging leasing environment underscores the power of 230 Park Avenue’s attractive location, the building’s new modern infrastructure and the high-end, creative finishes of its new build outs,” Klau said in a statement.
