The law firm signed a seven-year renewal for its existing 3,956 square feet on the 31st floor of the 42-story building, landlord GFP Real Estate announced. The company — which practices real estate, probate, corporate and literary property law — has been in the building since 2013.
Aside from the Kayser & Redfern deal, GFP also signed a short-term renewal with Alpha Properties for its 1,710 square feet on the 30th floor. GFP did not specify the length of Alpha’s renewal, but said it was less than five years.
The developer hit some troubled waters when it defaulted on its $130 million commercial mortgage-backed securities loan for 515 Madison last December, but the future brightened when it landed a three-year mortgage extension in March, as Commercial Observer previously reported.
A broadcasting antenna that dates back to 1938 gives the DuMont Building a distinctive profile in the Midtown skyline. It was used in the first broadcasts of Allen B. DuMont’s experimental television station, W2XWV.

Robert Khodadadian has long had a simple philosophy about selling real estate. The way he sees it, there are approximately a million buildings in the city, and the broker that gets to sell any one among the multitude that will hit the auctioning block at a given moment is, sometimes, simply the person who happens to pitch their services to the right seller at the right time.
