90,000 s/f relocation a healthy choice for firm.
Taconic, along with Jamestown and the New York Common Retirement System, owns the building.
WebMD Health, a leading provider of online information, educational services and communities for physicians and consumers, will relocate its existing office from 224 West 30th Street in mid-2005. The lease term is 10 years.
"WebMD's lease adds to our diverse list of major corporate tenants, which include Deutsch Advertising, Nike USA, Armani A|X, DoubleClick, Kmart, Level 3 Communications, Sprint, Time Warner Telecom, barnesandnoble.com, and Yamaha," says Mr. Nick.
Taconic Management Company LLC, the property manager, in conjunction with CB Richard Ellis' Brian Gell and Susan MacWilliams, negotiated the deal on behalf of building ownership. GVA Williams and Ackerman & Co. served as brokers to WebMD Health.
"WebMD's space encompasses an assemblage of three different offices, two vacated by exiting tenants, and another by a firm moving within the building," says Mr. Gell. 111 Eighth Avenue, the former Port Authority Commerce Building, is a 16-story, 2.9-million-square-foot Class-A office building spanning the entire block. Taconic Investment Partners, Jamestown and the New York Common Retirement System own the building.
