Jones Lang LaSalle Completes Renewal, Expansion for Stone Harbor in New York

Investment advisory firm inks 15-year deal for 53,398 SF; will occupy entire 16th floor, 17th floor at Class A, 659,724-SF 31 West 52nd Street

NEW YORK, February 11, 2014 — Jones Lang LaSalle has completed a new, direct lease for Stone Harbor Investment Partners LP at 31 West 52nd Street. The investment advisory firm signed a 15-year lease for 53,398 square feet at the Class A, 659,724-square-foot commercial office building.

The tenant, Stone Harbor, was represented by Robert Martin, vice chairman, and Brad Lane, vice president, both with JLL. The building owner, Paramount Group, Inc., was represented in-house by Peter Brindley, vice president.

“Stone Harbor Investment Partners was expanding and had a strong preference to remain at 31 West 52nd Street,” said Martin. “After a lengthy process involving many parties, we were able to secure contiguous space for the firm located directly above its existing floor that would become available later this year. The investment advisory firm found the opportunity to be ideal as it created an opportunity to expand seamlessly within the building.”

Stone Harbor renewed its existing lease for 26,600 square feet and will continue to occupy the entire 16th floor at 31 West 52nd Street, located between Fifth and Sixth Avenues in Midtown. The investment advisory firm will also expand by 26,738 square feet and will occupy the entire 17th floor at the building. The lease term on both spaces is co-terminous.

The 30-story 31 West 52nd Street was designed by Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo & Associates and constructed in 1986.
