Deals inked for Torchlight Investors, Square 1 Bank and Daikin US, post major renovation program


JLL has completed three new, direct leases totaling 28,190 square feet for owner TIAA-CREF at 475 Fifth Avenue. Torchlight Investors LLC signed for 16,029 square feet, Square 1 Bank took 7,842 square feet and Daikin US Corp. leased 4,319 square feet at the 280,000-square-foot, Class A commercial office building.

TIAA-CREF was represented by Frank Doyle, vice chairman; Cynthia Wasserberger, managing director; Shawna Menifee, executive vice president; and Douglas Neye, senior vice president.

The building offers spectacular views of the New York Public Library and Bryant Park.… Read More
