Northwestern Mutual has signed a 10-year lease for 91,217 square feet at 200 Liberty Street, the southernmost tower at Brookfield Place. The financial security company will occupy the building’s entire 30th to 32nd floors.
Scott Vinett, executive vice president at JLL, along with Fischer & Co.’s Chris Joyner, executive vice president and Andrew Hegmann, senior vice president, represented the tenant. Brookfield Properties was represented in-house by Mikael Nahmias, senior vice president, and by JLL’s Paul N. Glickman, vice chairman and John Wheeler, managing director.
“Northwestern Mutual’s business is thriving and the financial company was looking for a larger office to accommodate its Manhattan staff,” said Vinett. “They decided on Brookfield Place, as it is an amenity-rich complex with quality ownership that fosters a superior tenant experience.”
The 40-story 200 Liberty Street was designed by Cesar Pelli & Associates Architects and constructed in 1986. Brookfield Properties has enhanced 200 Liberty Street’s infrastructure to meet U.S. Green Building Council standards for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Gold Certification for Existing Building Operations and Maintenance.
