SL Green To Acquire The Olivia On Manhattan’s West Side

SL Green Realty Corp. (NYSE: SLG) today announced it has reached agreement to acquire The Olivia, a mixed-use residential and commercial building, situated at the gateway to Manhattan’s far west side. The $386 million acquisition also includes an adjacent lot.

The 36-story, 492,987-square-foot building, which was completed in 2012, is located at 315 West 33 rd Street between 8 th and 9 th Avenues and includes 333 luxury rental apartments. The commercial space, which is 100 percent leased at below-market rental rates, consists of 270,000 square feet primarily situated along 34 th Street, and includes a 14-screen movie theater, five ground-level retail stores, two office suites and a 250-space parking garage.

“We see this acquisition as a great opportunity to expand our multifamily investment platform at a time when the New York City residential market is strong,” said SL Green President, Andrew Mathias. “The property is located in a neighborhood that is expected to absorb thousands of new jobs during the next decade. With those new jobs, the local demand for luxury housing also is expected to climb sharply.”

Mr. Mathias continued, “The property also is strategically situated on the 34 th Street retail corridor, which continues its westward expansion. The anticipated substantial increase in pedestrian traffic between Penn Station and Hudson Yards is likely to strengthen that retail corridor, which we believe will significantly enhance the value of this property’s retail component.”

Darcy Stacom of CBRE Group, Inc., along with Bill Shanahan and Paul Leibowitz, was the exclusive agent for the transaction. In addition, FTI Consulting acted as an advisor to the transaction.
