Fourth-generation real estate company Fisher Brothers announced that Brevan Howard has signed a lease agreement at 1345 Avenue of the Americas. Brevan Howard, an alternative leading asset manager and current tenant of 1345 Avenue of the Americas, will significantly increase its presence from a partial floor tenancy to occupy 83,403 square feet on two full floors, the 19th and 20th.
“As the citywide surge in demand for office space continues in New York, we are excited to grow our partnership with Brevan Howard,” said Ken Fisher, partner at Fisher Brothers. “Office culture and tenant needs have changed drastically, but 1345 has stayed on pace. The thoughtfully designed amenity floor, engaging outdoor space and experiential art installation, and state-of-the-art infrastructure and technology create a leading office environment for Brevan Howard, and all of our valued tenants to call home.”
Last year, Fisher Brothers completed a $120 million large-scale capital improvement project at 1345 Avenue of the Americas, which included upgrades to the building’s exterior, an artfully designed lobby with upgraded touchless elevators, and a new amenity floor, @Ease1345, featuring a tenant lounge, wellness center and hybrid meeting spaces. In May, Fisher Brothers unveiled newly installed public art. Additional upgrades to Fisher Park include public Wi-Fi, over 100 feetof bench seating to work, collaborate and meet around new raised planters, tables and chairs throughout the plaza, new granite pavers, steps and lighting.
