LinkedIn signs expansion lease at Empire State Building

LinkedIn has signed its eighth expansion lease at the Empire State Building, adding three and a half floors and 188,653 square feet to its current campus.

Since 2011, LinkedIn has grown to 501,600square feet in total at the World’s Most Famous Building, said Empire State Realty Trust, Inc. in a statement.

Soaring 1,454 feet above Midtown Manhattan, the Empire State Building is the World’s Most Famous Building.

With new investments in energy-efficiency, building-wide infrastructure upgrades, public areas and amenities in the final stages the building attracts office tenants in a diverse array of industries from around the world including Shutterstock, Coty, JCDecaux, Citizen Watch Company, LinkedIn, HNTB, Agoda (Priceline), Human Rights Watch, Global Brands Group, Palo Alto Networks, Skanska, and World Monument Fund.

“LinkedIn has created an exceptional environment that reflects its unique culture and brand in the Empire State Building. In addition to its expansion on the 24th floor, we were able to arrange an early recapture of space from an existing tenant, and that made available three floors to accommodate LinkedIn’s additional growth within the Empire State Building’s Urban Campus,” said Thomas P. Durels, Executive Vice President, Real Estate, for ESRT.

Sacha Zarba, Lauren Crowley Corrinet, and Chris Hogan of CBRE, Inc. represented LinkedIn. Landlord representation was provided by Ryan Kass and Shanae Ursini from ESRT.
