    SL Green’s Park Avenue Redevelopment Under Way





    By Natalie Dolce
    July 12, 2007

    NEW YORK CITY-SL Green Realty Corp. and Prudential Real Estate Investors, owners of 100 Park Ave., are currently in the concluding phase of their $72-million redevelopment program. The redevelopment will transform the property from a class B, white brick office building, into a class A property.

    The redevelopment will include a new glass and metal facade, a two-story high lobby featuring glass and stone walls with marble floors, new elevator cabs, infrastructure upgrade and state-of-the-art security, including electronic access, surveillance and 24-hour security guards. The redevelopment is expected to be completed by the end of this year.

    Located one block south of Grand Central Terminal between 40th and 41st streets, the 36-story building, which contains 825,000 rentable sf, is expected to be one third vacant first quarter 2008, noted Steven Durels, EVP and director of leasing and real property at SL Green, during the company’s presentation and private tour of the building Wednesday morning.

    “This is our largest repositioning to date, and we look forward to doing a bigger one in the future,” Durels said. The redevelopment will permit SL Green to capitalize on large blocks of space that are soon to become available.

    “Previously in 2001, we closed a deal on one of the tower floor leases at $52 per sf,” Durels said. “Last week, we signed our first lease on the 35th floor at $110 per foot.” Durels went on to explain that the difference in asking prices is being driven by the market and by the quality of the newly renovated building.

    “There is a large demand from a variety of businesses,” he said. “Tenants who have shown interest in the facility have mainly been law firms, financial services, hedge funds, equity investors and accounting firms.”

    Durels explained that the Manhattan office market is red hot. “I don’t foresee any slowdown the rest of the year...the market is going to hold,” he said. “We are beginning to see that there aren’t enough seats at the table, which is forcing companies to cross a river and look for space elsewhere.”

    Some of the larger recent leasing transactions in the 100 Park Ave. building were Fox Rothschild, who expanded and renewed its lease to a 10-year, 30,578-sf lease. J&W Seligman & Co. Inc. signed a lease extension with a lease commencement date of April 1, 2008 for 90,039 sf. Seligman Data Corp. signed an extension for 11 years and four months for 13,324 sf. General American Investors Co. Inc. signed a 10-year, seven-month lease for 10,750 sf.

    Cushman & Wakefield is the leasing agent of the property.

    Still waiting for londonlawyer to come in here and give a big thumbs up to this makeover.

    Unfortunately, the office rents here will skyrocket afterwards.

    330 Madison desperately needs a new skin. It's in such a prominent location and is a hideous eyesore.

    I mean with the glass. I guess they did the metal part and that is ugly already.

    This is better than that. Much better:

    Dirty, worn down by the elements, but it has a million times more style.

    A no-go in these botoxed times of ours.

    Default Some interesting bit of history...

    To make way for 100 Park Ave., the Murray Hill hotel was razed back in 1947.

    The occupants of the hotel at the time had fought unsuccessfully to stop it.

    Excellent ^ Wired New York teaches us something NEW every day

    More on the Murray Hill Hotel (architect: Stephen D. Hatch; 1884) ...

    Berenice Abbott photos from 1935 ...

    MURRAY HILL HOTEL
    NOVEMBER 19, 1935. ABBOTT FILE 41

    Built in 1884, the 600-room Murray Hill Hotel offered its guests the ultimate in
    modern convenience, including a steam elevator and electric lights on the first two
    floors. Its superb location near the homes of many of the city's most prominent citizens
    and the central railroad depot added to its success. During its glory years, the hotel
    counted among its habitues Mark Twain, Grover Cleveland, Jay Gould, and
    J. P. Morgan, who walked from his nearby home to drink coffee and smoke cigars
    in the lobby. In 1910, Benjamin Bates, a former night clerk, purchased the hotel,
    refused repeatedly to sell it, and, except for updating the plumbing, resisted
    modernization. By Abbott's day, the "Old Lady" stood as an eloquent reminder of
    a bygone era; its food, according to Abbott, remained excellent. (McQuaid, 389).

    NY TIMES
    October 20, 1884

    An important addition to the hotels of New-York is the Murray Hill Hotel,
    at Park Avenue and Forty-first-street. It is now open for the reception of
    guests. It has a frontage of 200 feet on Park-avenue, 230 feet on Fortieth,
    and 130 on Forty-first street ...

    Full NY Times rticle from 1884, including detailed description of the materials
    (Cape Ann granite, Carlisle brownstone, Philadelphia pressed brick) and info
    on the latest in fire-preventative measure HERE [pdf]; it ends with this:
    The lessees intend to make the Murray Hill Hotel one of the finest in the world,
    and at the same time not to beggar their guests by exorbidant rates.
    A man can live at this house for $4 per day.
