“There is no better way to start the year at OGCP than with a great, new lease and the significant growth of an existing tenant,” said Thomas P. Durels, Executive Vice President, Real Estate for ESRT.  “One Grand Central Place’s location directly across from Grand Central Terminal is unmatched. The property was recently recognized as a Fitwel Champion. In addition, ESRT’s portfolio is the first in the United States to be certified under the WELL Health-Safety Rating, and we achieved a 5 Star Rating from GRESB in our first year of submission. With these certifications and ESRT’s leadership in Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ), One Grand Central Place is a top choice for any tenant that seeks the ability to return to the office with confidence and the convenience of a coveted Grand Central address.”
