Jones Lang LaSalle Inks 12,723-SF Lease for 3i at One Grand Central Place in New York

Premier debt management company to occupy entire 41st floor at Class A, 1.3 MSF commercial office tower

NEW YORK, February 14, 2014 — Jones Lang LaSalle has completed a new, direct lease for 3i Debt Management US LLC at One Grand Central Place, located at 60 East 42nd Street. The debt management services firm signed a 10-year lease for 12,723 square feet at the Class A, 1.3 million-square-foot commercial office building.

The tenant, 3i Debt Management, was represented by Alexander Chudnoff, vice chairman, and Dan Turkewitz, senior vice president, both with JLL. The building owner, Empire State Realty Trust, was represented in-house by Ryan Kass, senior vice president and director of leasing and marketing, along with William Cohen, executive vice president and principal, with Newmark Grubb Knight Frank.

“3i Debt Management’s business was thriving, and the company sought larger offices in a high-end building that could accommodate its growth,” said Chudnoff. “Empire State Realty Trust was able to provide the debt management services firm with a full floor in an iconic building. One Grand Central Place is physically connected to Grand Central Terminal, offering direct access to Metro-North and the 4, 5, 6, 7 and Shuttle subway lines.”

3i Debt Management will occupy the entire 41st floor at One Grand Central Place, which is located between Madison and Park avenues. The debt management services firm is relocating to the office tower from its existing offices at 400 Madison Avenue.
One Grand Central Place, formerly known as the Lincoln Building, is the second-largest building in the Empire State Realty Trust portfolio. The 55-story office building was designed by J.E.R. Carpenter and constructed in 1930.
