Trinity’s 137 Varick Street Reaches 100%

A Trinity Real Estate-owned Hudson Square office building has reached 100 percent occupancy after it lured NYU-Poly Varick Street Incubator away from another Trinity-owned building into a bigger space, signed Paik Architecture PLLC to new office space, and agreed to give current tenant Unity Construction Development additional space, The Commercial Observer has learned.

Having met maximum capacity, 137 Varick Street now has an eclectic collection of tenants that range from Alexander Gorlin Architects, online job search company TheLadders, and Scott Jordan Furniture.

Unity Construction Development, a construction management firm, signed a four year extension to bump up its total square footage to 3,100 from 2,000 square feet for the company’s fourth floor office. 

On the same floor, Paik Architecture and its affiliates—Paik Construction, Inc., Eckersley O’Callaghan & Partners LLC and PS Design LLC—agreed to a five-year lease for 2,988 square feet of space.

The NYU-Poly Varick Street Incubator, a entrepreneur development program run by The Polytechnic Institute of NYU, signed a three-year lease to relocate to 28,364 square feet of space in the building’s second and seventh floors. NYU-Poly moved from 14,000 square feet at 10 Hudson Square.

Trinity was represented by Marc Packman, Director of Leasing, and Tom Lynch in the company’s negotiations with Unity Construction and Paik Architecture. Peter Fontanetta represented Trinity in the NYU-Poly deal.

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
