RXR Realty to Occupy 75 Rockefeller Plaza

The office tower at 75 Rockefeller Plaza has been around since 1947-originally known as the ‘ESSO Building’ for the Standard Oil Company. Time Warner Corporation has occupied it since 1993.

The building will undergo renovations after a switch in occupancy. LEED certification is becoming an essential aspect in creating new buildings and new opportunities in New York City. The upcoming project for a new building in Rockefeller Center is no exception. RXR recently signed a 99-year lease for 75 Rockefeller Plaza in Midtown. Renovations of the building are to start in summer of 2014 (when Time Warner’s net lease expires). Scott Rechler, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of RXR states “When renovations are complete it will be the newest, most advanced, LEED Certified building in all of Rockefeller Center.”  There is a plan to have multi-floor retail occupancy.
