Newmark Knight Frank Arranges 70,000+SF Lease for Accounting Firm in Midtown East

New York, NY (02/05/2020)

11:31 AM

Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) is pleased to announce that it has arranged a new 70,728-square-foot office lease for accounting firm Marcum LLP at 730 Third Avenue. NKF's Executive Managing Director Ross Perlman and Senior Managing Director Lee Brodsky represented the tenant in this transaction.

Marcum, one of the largest independent public accounting and advisory services firms in the United States, will relocate its headquarters office to 730 Third Avenue from its current space at 750 Third Avenue, adding more than 10,000 square feet of office space as the firm experiences continued growth across the country. The new space is a significant upgrade for Marcum, which has offices in more than 30 cities across the U.S., and includes access to a wraparound terrace and the opportunity for distinguished logo signage throughout the building's lobby. The firm expects to move into the property by early 2021.

"Marcum is a dynamic, growing firm that was looking to upgrade the quality of its workplace with their expansion, while staying within its current submarket," said Perlman. "Having partnered with Marcum through the years, we understood the importance of identifying a location that would support the firm's business needs, most importantly its future growth and recruitment goals."

Ownership was represented by Neil King & Paul Amrich of CBRE. 730 Third Avenue is a prime 27-story, 665,110-square foot office tower located two blocks from Grand Central Terminal. The building's ownership is currently working on a large project to reimagine the space, adding two new lobbies, double-height storefronts and a 35,000 square-foot amenity center that will include a tenant-exclusive food hall, a fitness center, and a conference center. The building will also have a 7,000 square-foot roof terrace on the 22nd floor available to all tenant use.
