SL Green Realty Corp. has sold 635-641 Sixth Avenue, an office property in Midtown South, for $325 million.

The property is comprised of two adjoined buildings totaling 8 stories and 267,000 square feet, occupying the full western block-front on Sixth Avenue from 19th Street to 20th Street in Midtown South.

The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2021, subject to customary closing conditions, and generate net cash proceeds to SL Green of approximately $312.5 million.

“New York City’s revitalization continues as does the demand for Class A office buildings,” said Harrison Sitomer, Senior Vice President.

“The disposition at a sale price of more than $1,200 per square foot is a result of extensive repositioning and leasing efforts at the property, which is further evidence of the breadth of expertise that the SL Green platform brings to the table. Completion of this transaction represents another step in the successful execution of our 2021 business plan,” he added.

The office property in Midtown South is currently 94% leased and anchored by multi-national enterprise software company, Infor, through 2030, following a recently executed renewal and extension.

SL Green acquired the property in 2012 for $173 million and completed its redevelopment in 2015, including a new lobby, elevators, state-of-the-art building systems and a one-of-a-kind penthouse rooftop that includes outdoor amenity and event space.

Darcy Stacom, William Shanahan and Doug Middleton of CBRE represented SL Green in the transaction.
