The consulting firm, which specializes in a range of industries, will remain in its current 34,640-square-foot footprint on the entire 40th and 41st floors of the 41-story building, the source said. Asking rent was between $85 to $95 per square foot.
Newmark’s Brian Goldman and Matt Lorberbaum negotiated on behalf of Berkeley, while SL Green’s Jeremy Bier and Larry Swiger led negotiations in-house.
Newmark declined to comment. SL Green did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
SL Green was just one of many commercial landlords that took a major hit during the first year of the pandemic, but it was able to attract tenants such as law firm Ballon Stoll Bader & Nadler to 810 Seventh in January 2021, which relocated to the Midtown Class A office building after being offered 12 months of free rent.
Since then, SL Green has seen a renewed wave of leasing, including the Canada-based waste manager GFL Environmental, which signed up for 9,871 square feet on the top floor of 1 Vanderbilt in April, and tech giant IBM signing on to be the anchor tenant at 1 Madison Avenue in March.
Other tenants in 810 Seventh include TV station conglomerate Ion Media and wealth manager TAG Associates.
