A Miami-based architecture firm [https://www.bermelloajamil.com/] contracted to redevelop Manhattan’s and Brooklyn’s cruise terminals by the city of New York, signed a lease in SoHo for a 5,000 s.f. full floor loft. The five-year lease is valued at an aggregate rental of $675,000. Ralph Trionfo was given the exclusive assignment to find quality office space in Manhattan for the firm’s New York office and living quarters for key executives who would head their New York operations.

The firm had specific requirements to follow in keeping their image: The building had to be well maintained, the space light and airy, and the location easily accessible to transportation. After an extensive search that included tours of over 30 sites tours in various parts of the city, we focused out the search in SoHo. We chose SoHo as the ‘best creative environment’ for their current and future needs. We looked for a space that is unfinished and wide open so they could create a unique loft that reflects their sense of style and design. Having a presence on Broadway in SoHo, one of the hottest areas in Manhattan is also very appealing to the tenant; and the rate per s.f., I negotiated – its a great deal! Once the client approved the space, I worked closely with the owners and tenants counsel to negotiate terms of the lease which was finalized in just nine days.
