Belkin Burden Goldman, LLP (“BBG”) is proud to announce that the Firm has signed a long term lease with Empire State Realty Trust (“ESRT”) and will be relocating, following construction of the new space, to One Grand Central Place, a 55-story historical gem across from Grand Central Terminal.
“BBG decided to sign a long term lease, because we remain bullish on the future of New York City and are confident that it will bounce back, just as it did post 9-11 and after the Great Recession,” said Jeffrey L. Goldman, founding and co-managing partner, as well as head of the Litigation Department at BBG. In addition, “Relocating to One Grand Central accomplishes several of the firm’s business goals. The most important being that our employees will now be located across one floor and in a space that will be tailored to our specific needs – from technology, health, and design standpoints,” added Daniel Altman, co-managing partner and head of BBG’s Transactional Department.
The new space will feature over 30,598 SF on a single floor, fitted with new furniture, and upgraded technology. In addition, the state-of-the-art building has substantially completed upgrades that will afford a very high level of efficiency, convenience to mass transportation, and will also have enhanced health and safety features. The lease was brokered by Savills, specifically Jeffrey Peck, Daniel Horowitz, Roi Shleifer, Colm Ralph, and Jacob Stern, and ESRT was represented by Newmark’s Scott Klau, Erik Harris, Neil Rubin.
Signing this new lease only serves to reinforce the confidence we have in our firm and City as we move past the pandemic. BBG is a team of transactional, regulatory, administrative and litigation attorneys dedicated to providing the highest level of real estate advocacy and counseling to owners, developers, management companies and coop and condo boards.
