Jones Lang LaSalle completes expansion for ABN AMRO Holdings at 100 Park Avenue in New York

Financial services firm extends lease of 20,626 SF on 17th floor; expands into 10,889 SF on 23rd floor of Class A office building in Midtown

NEW YORK, August 9, 2011 — Jones Lang LaSalle has completed a lease renewal and expansion for ABN AMRO Holdings USA LLC with SL Green Realty Corp. at 100 Park Avenue. The bank signed an 11-year lease for a total of 32,259 square feet at the 825,815-square-foot, Class A office building.

ABN AMRO Holdings was represented by Chris Kraus, managing director, and Mercedes Fernandez, associate, both with Jones Lang LaSalle’s New York office. Building owner SL Green Realty Corp. was represented in-house by Larry Swiger, senior vice president, and by Peter Alden, associate, with Cushman & Wakefield Inc.

"ABN AMRO had recently moved into 100 Park Avenue following an extensive build-out of its new space on the 17th floor of the building,” said Kraus. “Due to the positive experience the bank has enjoyed at the building, ABN AMRO decided to opportunistically expand onto the 23rd floor to accommodate an incoming business unit and organic expansion. The bank also extended its lease on the 17th floor of 100 Park Avenue.”

ABN AMRO Holdings previously occupied 20,626 square feet on the 17th floor of 100 Park Avenue, which is located between East 40th and East 41 Street. The bank expanded its occupancy at the building by 10,889 square feet on the 23rd floor and 744 square feet of storage space. The lease term for ABN AMRO’s offices on the 17th floor is coterminous with its expansion space on the 23rd floor.
