Law Firm’s Additional Commitment Brings Total Presence in Midtown Tower to Nearly 100,000 Square Feet
Rudin, a full-service real estate organization, and one of New York City’s largest private owners, operators and developers of best-in-class real estate, announced that full-service law firm Davis & Gilbert LLP is growing its headquarters at 1675 Broadway, a 35-story, 800,000 square-foot office tower in the heart of Midtown.
New York City-based Davis & Gilbert has occupied 86,102 square feet across the building’s 31st through 34th floors and a portion of the 35th floor since 2019. The new, 13-year lease, which adds 12,022 square feet on the 35th floor, runs coterminous with the existing footprint, bringing the firm’s total building presence to 98,124 square feet.
Davis & Gilbert is a strategically focused, full-service mid-sized law firm founded over a century ago. The firm represents a wide array of clients – ranging from start-ups to some of the world’s largest public companies and financial institutions – throughout the United States and internationally.
“We’re delighted to be able to accommodate Davis & Gilbert’s expansion needs at 1675 Broadway,” said Michael Rudin, Executive Vice President of Rudin. “We take pride in our ability to grow long-term relationships with our tenants and appreciate the opportunity to continue serving the needs of this powerhouse legal firm.”
Built in 1989 by Jack and Lewis Rudin and designed by Fox and Fowle Architects, the postmodernist style, granite office building at 1675 Broadway boasts sweeping views of Times Square, the Hudson River, Central Park and the midtown skyline. Situated at the corner of Broadway and West 52nd Street, the building was constructed using the air rights over the adjacent Broadway Theatre. The tower features an elegant Italian marble-clad lobby with vaulted ceilings, virtually column-free floor plates that can accommodate up to 10 corner offices and a 60-car parking garage. The property is Wired Certified Platinum, recognizing its best-in-class internet infrastructure and connectivity, and is located steps away from the 7th Avenue B/D/E and the 57th Street N/Q/R/W subways.
In addition to Davis & Gilbert, 1675 Broadway is home to law firms Roberts & Holland LLP and Ballard Spahr LLP, as well as global advertising and media company Publicis Groupe.
Lewis Miller, Michael Wellen and Chris Hogan of CBRE represented Davis & Gilbert. Building ownership was represented by Robert Steinman, Senior Vice President at Rudin.
