Jones Lang LaSalle Chosen by Paramount Group to Lease 1325 Avenue of the Americas

Firm to provide marketing, agency leasing services for 34-story office building totaling 786,000 SF of office space

NEW YORK, March 12, 2013 — Jones Lang LaSalle was selected by Paramount Group Inc. as exclusive commercial leasing agent for 1325 Avenue of the Americas. The firm will provide marketing and agency leasing services for the Class A, 786,000-square-foot office building.

The JLL team overseeing the leasing assignment is led by Frank Doyle, vice chairman, and includes David Kleiner and Douglas Neye, senior vice presidents. The group will work closely with Ted Koltis, senior vice president, and Peter Brindley, vice president, with the Paramount Group leasing team.

We are delighted that Paramount Group has tapped us again to work with its leasing team on a trophy building such as 1325 Avenue of the Americas.”
