“Ownership was successful in leasing these units by constructing stunning, high-quality, amenitized prebuilt units to accommodate the needs of today’s workforce,” Gordon said in a statement. “We expect continued robust leasing to a diverse array of tenants due to the property’s new design-focused prebuilt suites, extensive upgrades and superior location right in the heart of Times Square.”
