Stocks in this article: SLG

SL Green Realty Corp. (NYSE: SLG) today announced that it has entered into a contract to acquire the fee interest at 635 Madison Avenue for $145 million. The off-market transaction, which is subject to customary closing conditions, is expected to be completed during the third quarter of 2014. The property is encumbered by a ground lease through April 2030 with one 21-year renewal extension option.

The acquisition increases SL Green’s footprint in Manhattan’s prestigious Plaza District, where it also owns several office and retail properties, including 625 Madison Avenue, 724 Fifth Avenue, 1350 Avenue of the Americas, 10 E. 53 rd Street and the recently acquired retail at 650 Fifth Avenue.

Designed by Emery Roth & Sons, completed in 1958, the improvements of the fee interest include a 19-story 176,530-square-foot office tower occupied by a selection of office and medical tenants, including the prestigious watchmaker Raymond Weil. On the ground floor, the property features world-class luxury retail tenants Baccarat, Molton Brown and Camper.
