Part of the former FM Ring portfolio, these four buildings were acquired by Kaufman Organization in partnership with Principal Real Estate Investors through a highly structured 99-year ground lease. The buildings had not been occupied for more than a decade and were in significant disrepair at the time of the transaction. Kaufman commenced a $30M major capital improvement program that included renovated lobbies, new retail storefronts, modernized elevators, and the installation of tech amenities and telecommunication risers, a comprehensive program that will turn each of the buildings from an eyesore into a fully modernized, pride -of -ownership, prime office property, and a market leader in each of its respective submarkets.

Purchased in 2012 in partnership with Lubert-Adler Real Estate Funds, this 124,000 square foot building located just west of Fifth Avenue and Madison Square Park was identified as a classic undermanaged asset. The Kaufman Organization set out on a $5 million capital and leasing program, which completely transformed the property from C class to near-prime. Within approximately one year, the façade, lobby and common corridor renovations were completed and Kaufman had rolled 25% of the rent roll to market rate leases. Within two years, the transformation was virtually complete, and the property was sold at exceptional pricing.

Purchased out of bankruptcy in 2010 in partnership with Invesco Real Estate, the 240,000 SF building had approximately 190,000 SF of existing and rolling vacant space. Major obstacles included negative market perception of the building, lack of capital improvements and a deteriorating infrastructure. Within the first nine months of ownership, the Kaufman Organization secured 150,000 SF of new leases with rents significantly exceeding pro forma. Kaufman implemented a $15 million capital improvement and lease up program, consisting of new lobbies, elevators and a complete infrastructure renovation, and had attracted major office tenants to the property, such as Apple, Yelp and Net a Porter. Under Kaufman’s aggressive value-add ownership, the former “zombie” building was transformed into what is now generally considered to be one of the pre-eminent office properties in New York’s “Silicon Alley.”
