Real estate brokers who want to put their best face forward with flattering professional headshots will be able to work with one of the industry’s top photographers in a special event that will give them the marketing tool they need, while supporting charities to help the relief efforts in communities that have been most affected by the recent natural disasters.
ABS Partners Real Estate is holding a broker event for its newly renovated office building at 145 East 57th St., a common occurrence in the highly competitive world of office leasing. But the firm, which owns and leases office properties, decided that its new acquisition, for which it paid nearly $1K/SF last year when it acquired it from a Brazilian firm, deserved a special event.
The building that’s the historic home to fancy-gadget emporium Hammacher Schlemmer has gotten the boutique-office treatment. Landlord ABS Partners Real Estate, which bought 145 E. 57th St. in partnership with Benson Investment last fall for $62.75 million, has completed a capital improvements program to create 64,000 square feet of “curated” office space.
