Tech Office Space Update – Salesforce Tower Coming Soon to 3 Bryant Park
Salesforce, the CRM and lead management juggernaut, recently announced that it will be taking a large portion of office space at 3 Bryant Park, formerly known as 1095 Avenue of the Americas. The green building, which sits directly on Bryant Park and offers unparalleled views and access to transportation, has long been one of the most prestigious addresses south of 42nd Street (click here to search for office space near Bryant Park). Under this deal, the building, which was previously Metlife’s namesake, will be renamed Salesforce Tower.
The move, which will give Salesforce an unusual signage opportunity on the New York City Skyline, is not only an expansion but also a consolidation. The company, founded in 1999, currently employs over 16,000 people and is doubling down on its New York City footprint- planning to add hundreds of jobs in the not-too-distant future. Currently occupying office space at 685 Third Avenue, 140 East 45th Street, and 155 Avenue of the Americas, the move will allow the company to achieve a new level of efficiency by putting everyone under one roof.
3 Bryant Park, formerly known as 1095 Avenue of the Americas, was sold by Blackstone Group LP for $2.2 billion to Ivanhoe Cambridge Inc., which is the real estate arm of Canadian pension fund Caisse de Depot et Placement du Quebec, and Callahan Capital Properties. This was the largest office space transaction in Manhattan since 2008.
