CanAm will leave its longtime office at 88 Pine Street, where it has been a tenant for more than 30 years. 

CBRE (CBRE)’s Bruce Surry and Eric Sears represented the tenant in the deal, while Helmsley Spear’s Andrew Simon, James Emden, Randy Sherman and Kent Swig handled the transaction on behalf of the landlord, 48 Wall LLC

“The spurt of activity we have experienced since taking over the leasing and management at the end of last year is clear evidence of the confidence that tenants and brokers have shown in both the ownership and management of this iconic FiDi property,” Swig said in prepared remarks.
