SL Green Realty has signed a 99,556 square foot lease agreement with Beam Suntory at 11 Madison Avenue in Manhattan.
The 15-year lease covers the entire 12th floor and brings the building’s occupancy to 100%.
“We’re delighted to welcome Beam Suntory to 11 Madison Avenue,” said Steven Durels, Executive Vice President and Director of Leasing and Real Property at SL Green. “11 Madison has long enjoyed great popularity due to its large floor plates, beautiful architecture and spectacular location across from Madison Square Park.”
11 Madison Avenue will serve as Beam Suntory’s global headquarters, as well as a key global office for Beam Suntory’s parent company, Suntory Holdings. Beam Suntory expects to open the office at 11 Madison next year following design and construction of the space.
“As one of the world’s greatest global cities, New York provides a stimulating setting to accelerate our premiumization strategy and growth ambitions. We see excellent opportunities to immerse our company and global brand building efforts more deeply in New York’s vibrant restaurant, bar and consumer environment, what we call the Gemba,” said Albert Baladi, president & CEO of Beam Suntory. “11 Madison is a perfect fit for us.”
