Yesterday afternoon, our friend and sponsor Monday Properties unveiled its $1M lobby renovation and ornate bronze murals at 230 Park (known to you aficionados as the Crown Jewel of Park Ave.)
CEO Anthony Westreich and Manhattan borough president Scott Stringer at 230 Park
We snapped CEO Anthony Westreich and Manhattan borough president Scott Stringer kicking off the event with the presentation (and subsequent dropping) of a City Proclamation—Scott joked that the shattered glass was just another way of saying mazel tov to Monday for the lobby restoration and mural. Beyer Blinder Belle, the architect, chose the mural to cover the antiquated directory boards in the lobby, an Art Deco sister to Grand Central (the building was once home to New York Central Railroad). It joins a new state-of-the-art security desk at the south side of the building.
Anthony Westreich and Scott Stringer join Landmark Preservation Commission chair Bob Tierney, City Council member Dan Garodnick, and Anthony’s sons Gabriel and Max

What better subject for the mural than a train? Anthony and Scott join Landmark Preservation Commission chair Bob Tierney, City Council member Dan Garodnick, and Anthony’s sons Gabriel and Max. The two 6’x14' bronze murals depict the Twentieth Century Limited pulling away from the skyline, with 230 Park in the background. Oil painter Chris Ludlow's compositions served as the blueprint, sculpted by local artist Joan Benefiel, and Brooklyn-based Excalibur Bronze Foundry molded and cast the artwork using the “lost-wax” technique—an ancient craft dating to 2990 BC.


Progenics Pharmaceuticals

Westchester is the latest recipient of large renewal: Progenics Pharmaceuticals inked a 10-year, 149k-SF lease at The Landmark at Eastview, 765 Old Saw Mill River Rd, Tarrytown, where it’s been HQ’ed for over a decade. CBRE's Patricia Ardigo and Bob Caruso brokered the deal on behalf of the tenant, while BioMed Realty Trust’s Bill Kane repped owner BMR-Landmark at Eastview. The 1.1M-SF property is a multi-tenanted science park comprised of research, manufacturing, and office space, and recently added a 360k-SF, three-building addition to the complex.

FirstService Williams’ Perry Mesmer
We’re seeing real movement from tenants again, says FirstService Williams’ Perry Mesmer, who closed over 100k SF of deals in the past two months, a number in the Flatiron-Chelsea districts. One is construction management firm R.D. Rice, which is moving to new 3.5k-SF digs at 56 W. 22nd St, joining an eclectic mix of creative tenants, including a photographer, baking supply company, architect, and even a toy robot manufacturer. Perry is marketing the building on behalf of owner Ernest Blum; 10k SF is still available, and he’s in negotiations with a national communications firm to take the 5k second floor. (Might we suggest 5k SF for a toy robot destroyer, for when they inevitably come alive? I, Robot, anyone?)
S. Sunshine & Associates’ Suzanne Sunshine.
The move is an upgrade for R.D. Rice, which is relocating from the far West Side. The tenant’s been doing a lot of work in the apartment sector, including a few owned by S. Sunshine & Associates’ Suzanne Sunshine. She and colleague Glenn Brill repped R.D. Rice in the deal, and this was the first time her firm, which exclusively works with non-profits, repped a non-profit board member in a move. The construction firm’s owner, Doug Rice, is chair of the Bronx Museum of Arts, and as part of Suzanne’s unique business model, she donated a significant portion of her fee to the museum in the form of a charitable donation.
