Jones Lang LaSalle Completes 8,828-SF Sublease at One Bryant Park in New York

Manikay Partners subleases portion of 39th floor from Marathon Assest Management at Class A, 2.1 MSF office tower

NEW YORK, April 30, 2013 — Jones Lang LaSalle has completed a sublease transaction with Manikay Partners LLC at One Bryant Park, also known as Bank of America Tower. The hedge fund manager signed a six-year sublease for 8,828 square feet of commercial office space with Marathon Asset Management LP at the Class A, 2.1 million-square-foot commercial office building.

JLL represented both sides in the sublease transaction. Alexander Chudnoff, executive managing director, represented the sublandlord, Marathon Asset Management; and Dan Turkewitz, senior vice president, represented the subtenant, Manikay Partners.

“This transaction was ideal for Manikay Partners, as the space on the 39th floor had been built-out and furnished to a very high standard by Marathon Asset Management,” said Turkewitz. “The previous tenant made substantial investments in supplemental air conditioning and wiring, which resulted in considerable capital expenditure savings to Manikay Partners. In addition to the turnkey installation, Manikay Partners was drawn to One Bryant Park due to its spectacular views, efficiencies associated with new construction, and the building’s extended HVAC hours. Open lines of communications among all parties involved in the transaction allowed for the completion of this sublease in just two weeks.”

Manikay Partners will occupy a portion of the 39th floor at One Bryant Park, which is located across from Bryant Park at the intersection of 42nd Street and Sixth Avenue. The hedge fund manager is relocating to the building from its previous offices at 375 Park Avenue, also known as the Seagrams Building.
