545 Madison Avenue

What better place to hawk tracksuits and sweater sets than a Madison Avenue penthouse? The Home Shopping Network, that seemingly inevitable destination of ex-Project Runway-ers, P. Diddy and United Homeless Organization funds, is coming to LCOR‘s recently completed tower at 545 Madison Avenue. The $2.8 billion interactive retailer will take the entire 18th-floor, glass-encased penthouse space for its executive offices, marketing center and a portion of its studio presentations (white vinyl couch and ticking clock not included).

“Home Shopping Network was looking for high-end, highly visible executive space that also had great light and views,” said LCOR’s David Sigman. “They also appreciated that we catered to their specific and multipurpose operational needs.”

Beginning in 2007, the building underwent a drastic gut rehabilitation and now boasts luxury features and LEED Gold certification. More than 90 percent of the building’s daytime light will come from the sun.

William Iacovelli of CB Richard Ellis represented the Home Shopping Network. Jones Lang LaSalle team Lisa Kiell, Frank Doyle, David Kleiner and Andrew Flint repped LCOR.
