229 West 43rd Street

With its stunning historical façade and striking modern interior, the iconic former New York Times building at Times Square has transformed into a hub for household-name tenants in the tech and creative industries.

229 West 43rd Street's strong tenant base and rental rates diversify our presence in Manhattan, helping us replicate the successful strategy we've employed in San Francisco of anchoring a growth-oriented portfolio with a stable income-producing asset. Constructed between 1912 and 1947, the building underwent a complete renovation between 2011 and 2015, and we are also adding luxury amenities, including Columbia Concierge, an exclusive onsite concierge service.

It's now fully leased to major tech and creative tenants, with future availability being absorbed at higher rates by pent-up demand from rapidly expanding tenants, including Snap Inc., which now leases 25% of the building (including future commitments).
