The law firm added to its existing 5,835-square-foot space on the 19th floor, which it has occupied since 2021. Sources familiar with the new deal said the asking rent was in the $70s per square foot.
JLL’s Diana Biasotti, Kristen Morgan and Thomas Swartz represented the landlord, Amtad, while Cresa’s Nicholas Markel handled the deal for the tenant. A spokesperson for JLL did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
“The timing was excellent for this full-floor expansion,” Markel said in a statement. “The landlord’s team, as always, was great to work with, and we were able to negotiate a package for the buildout that included interior egresses between the floors and a brand-new amenity space.”
The 154,000-square-foot building, known as Heron Tower, was designed by architecture firm Kohn Pedersen Fox, built in 1985 and is LEED Gold certified for having energy-efficient fixtures and mechanical systems.
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.
