Key transactions
Scott recently completed a 150,000 square foot deal for software firm SAP at 10 Hudson Yards, part of the new multi-billion dollar Hudson Yards Development.

This high profile transaction was an initial and integral deal in the completion of the project and involved complex strategic real estate initiatives including a multi-party negotiation that involved financing and new building construction.

Additionally Scott recently represented Denstu Holdings USA in a renewal and expansion of their offices at 32 Avenue of the Americas.

This 70,000 square deal allowed Denstu to increase their foot print in the asset to over 175,000 sqft and create growth optionality in a building that was close to 100% leased.

Scott also completed a 31,000 square foot deal for architectural firm Brennan Beer Gorman at the Empire State Building. This transaction was important as it commenced a repositioning of the asset from what had historically been a showroom building to a Class A office tower.

Scott also represented AMSCO School Publications in their 50,000 square foot lease modification and extension. Scott was successful in reducing AMSCO's occupancy costs by terminating the leasehold obligation on a portion of their space and structuring a new long term deal for their headquarters operation.

This transaction enabled AMSCO to reduce their foot print and restructure the lease even though the firm had a 4 year remaining lease obligation. The end result was tremendous cost and efficiency savings for AMSCO.

Scott has been the recipient of JLL's Top Gun award which is a distinction for the firm's top producers. He was also featured in Real Estate Forum's Tomorrow's Leaders.
