Lease Beat: 7.8.09

In a real estate war eerily reminiscent of the Burger King–McDonalds skirmishes (albeit one less soaked in abattoir blood), Staples has signed a 15-year, 3,000-square-foot lease just down the block from a FedEx store, according to landlord Craig Nassi. Coincidence? Unlikely. Winick Realty Group repped Mr. Nassi, owner of the former Credit Suisse office space at 315 Park Avenue South, at the corner of 24th Street.

Kiddie-wear company St. Lawrence U.S.A. will now hawk children’s gear from executive offices and a showroom at 34 West 33rd Sreet, where the firm signed a four-year, 1,066-square-foot lease. Adams & Co.’s David Levy and Brett Maslin represented both sides in negotiations.

In a poll asking where the Gallup Organization should move, the majority of respondents said nowhere (statistical error: +/- 0 percent). The professional public opinion thermometers have signed a five-year, 13,300-square-foot renewal at 1251 Avenue of the Americas. CB Richard Ellis’ Ben Friedland and Sacha Zarba repped Gallup in talks with Newmark Knight Frank's Nick Berger, David Falk and Peter Shimkin, who repped landlord Mitsui Fudosan.
