Alexander’s, Inc. Extends Bloomberg LP’s Global Headquarters Lease at 731 Lexington Avenue Tower Through 2040

NEW YORK, May 06, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Alexander’s, Inc. today announced an 11-year lease extension agreement with Bloomberg LP which will begin at the expiration of the existing lease in 2029, continuing a long-standing headquarters presence at 731 Lexington Avenue through 2040.

Bloomberg, which relocated its global headquarters to the tower upon its completion, will continue to occupy all 946,815 square feet of office space in the building. The company’s headquarters at 731 Lexington remains its largest globally with 7,000 of its 12,000 New York-based employees.

Alexander’s is a Real Estate Investment Trust that owns 731 Lexington Avenue. Vornado Realty Trust, which developed, manages, and leases the property, owns a 32.4% stake in Alexander’s, a publicly traded company.

“731 Lexington remains a best-in-class Midtown tower, impeccable in its design by Ceasar and Rafael Pelli, and light years ahead of the curve technologically,” said Steven Roth, Chairman and CEO of both Vornado and Alexander’s. “Bloomberg’s decision to remain is a testament to the rare and enduring quality of the tower as well as to our successful decades-long partnership.”

“I firmly believe in New York City’s continued growth as a global capital that creates jobs and attracts top talent, and our company is determined to do our part to help lead the way," said Michael R. Bloomberg, founder of Bloomberg LP. "I also believe in the power of in-person work to drive collaboration and innovation, and 731 Lexington’s open spaces help us do that. We’re glad to be staying."

Since Bloomberg first moved into 731 Lexington with nearly 697,000 square feet, the company’s real estate footprint in New York has more than tripled to over 2.1 million square feet today across three buildings.

The 1.3-million-square-foot, 56-story, mixed-use tower occupies a full city block between Lexington and Third Avenues, and East 58th and 59th Streets. 731 Lexington is best known for its signature elliptical courtyard and luminous crown which also serves as a landmark across Manhattan and Queens.

731 Lexington Avenue offers approximately 250,000 square feet of retail at the base and is also the site of One Beacon Court, an exclusive collection of 105 luxury residential condominiums boasting spectacular views of Central Park and panoramic views of all of New York City.
