Lease Beat: 7.22.09

Steak lovers, rejoice! (Cow lovers, mourn.) Bobby Van's Steakhouse which New York describes as “not as good as Peter Luger, but better than most of the rest,” largely thanks to its awesome service and low-key atmosphere, has extended for five years its 4,000-square-foot lease at 230 Park Avenue, where it has been serving the lunching midtown set since 1996. It renewed its 1,000-square-feet of office space on the mezzanine level for 15 years. The steakery was repped by Dana Moyles of Dana Moyles Real Estate, and landlord Monday Properties’ by its own Craig Panzirer.

Elise Overland, whose rock ’n’ roll–inspired duds have been photographed on the androgynously sexy Agyness Deyn and the female sexy Anne Hathaway—is relocating from 330 West 38th Street to a 3,500-square-foot showroom (with an enormous and stunning terrace) at the Starrett Lehigh Building at 601 West 26th Street. Asking rent: $39 a square foot. Neighbors: Club Monaco, Martha Stewart and Comme des Garçons. The Kaufman Organization’s Michael Heaner and Grant Greenspan repped Ms. Overland in negotiations with landlord 601 West AssociatesPeter Thorsen.


Hallelujah! Divine Apparel Inc.—which, despite our most fervent hopes, makes not pastoral robes or tallises but regular old men, women and children’s clothing—has signed a six-year, 2,835-square-foot new lease for offices and a showroom at 463 Seventh Avenue, asking rent $34 a square foot. Landlord The Arsenal Company is apparently on a roll. Just last week, we reported another lease—for tenant Y&Z World Development Inc.—in the same building. Adams & Co.’s David Levy represented the landlord in talks with tenant rep Evan Lieberman of Winoker Realty Company.
