Empire State Realty Trust, Inc. announced that Signature Bank, a New York-based full-service commercial bank, has more than doubled its current office space at 1400 Broadway. The company will expand by 168,310 square feet from its previous 111,872 square foot office space for a total of 280,182 square feet across 10 full floors. Signature Bank’s entire space is now under lease for 15 years.
Located along the improved Broadway Pedestrian Plaza, 1400 Broadway provides convenient access to nearby transportation, dining, lodging, and entertainment. Tenants benefit from ESRT’s leadership in energy efficiency and premier indoor environmental quality – which includes MERV 13 filters and active bi-polar ionization – at rents that are a fraction of newer buildings.
“Signature Bank’s expansion and lease extension are a testament to the market’s general flight to quality and the value proposition of 1400 Broadway,” said Thomas P. Durels, executive vice president, real estate at Empire State Realty Trust. “Signature Bank will continue to benefit from unparalleled customer service and superior indoor environmental quality measures for a confident return to office.”
