ROBINSON & COLE LLP INKS NEW LEASE AT THE CHRYSLER EAST BUILDING
Firm to relocate in spring of 2013
New York, NY (September 18, 2012)
Robinson & Cole LLP has leased 18,478 square feet – the entire 20th floor – at the Chrysler East Building, 666 Third Avenue in Midtown. The law firm, which has called 11,864 square feet at 885 Third Avenue home for the past nine years, will relocate its New York office in 2013. Studley Executive Managing Director Greg Taubin and Senior Managing Director Craig Lemle, along with Andy Filler of RM Bradley, advised Robinson & Cole on its new long-term lease transaction.
“We first began advising Robinson & Cole 36 months in advance of their 2013 lease expiration and fully engaged the marketplace 18 months ago,” said Taubin. “During that time, we evaluated numerous alternatives and were close to making a decision when we uncovered a future availability in the Chrysler East Building. The building and space fully satisfy the law firm’s overall real estate requirements.”
“We are extremely pleased to relocate our New York office to the Chrysler East Building next spring,” said John Lynch, Robinson & Cole’s managing partner. “The new office space will improve the working environment for new and existing staff and allow for future growth.”
