Sorry folks, but tenants eager to take space at the General Motors Building, the 50-story white-marble office spire overlooking Central Park at 767 Fifth Ave., will now have to take a number. The 2 million-square-foot building, which is owned by a partnership led by Boston Properties and is regarded as one of the city's highest-end properties, just filled its last bit of empty space.
BlueCrest Capital Management, a financial firm, has signed a deal to fill the building's entire ninth floor, a roughly 38,000-square-foot space where asking rents were $105 per square foot. BlueCrest committed to the space for 10 years in the lease.
Daniel Posy, a broker with Studley, represented BlueCrest Capital Management in the deal. BlueCrest will be moving to the GM Building from 9 W. 57th St., a building that is also regarded as one of the city's best addresses and has attracted several blockbuster deals in the recent past. But whereas the GM Building is now full, 9 W. 57th St. still has large pockets of empty space, mostly in the building's base floors, that its enigmatic but visionary landlord Sheldon Solow has appeared reluctant or unwilling to lease.
