SL Green Realty Corp (NYSE: SLG), New York City’s largest office landlord, today announced two lease agreements totaling over 37,000 square feet at 420 Lexington Avenue, also known as The Graybar Building.

The firm’s tenancy will now extend through 2027. Michael Burlant of Cushman & Wakefield represented Litchfield Cavo in the transaction, while Adam Weissleder negotiated in-house on behalf of SL Green.

“We’re delighted that Litchfield Cavo and Entertainment Software have each elected to renew and or expand with us” said Steven Durels, Executive Vice President, Director of Leasing and Real Property for SL Green, who added “the building is approximately 98% leased which speaks to the on-going desirability of the Grand Central submarket.”
