Weatherall Green Smith named international rep at 712 5th

Weatherall Green & Smith, the real estate brokerage and consulting company, has been appointed International Representative for 712 Fifth Avenue, Midtown Manhattan's newest and most prestigious office tower, which is owned by Michigan-based The Taubman Company.

Weatherall, which is headquartered in London, will market 712 Fifth to prospective tenants through its 18 offices in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Holland, Spain and Japan, and the United States.

The international marketing program will be coordinated through Weatherall's offices in London and New York, and bring an added dimension to the building's on-going leasing campaign managed by New York broker Jeffrey A. Lichtenberg, executive vice president of Peter R. Friedman Ltd., 712 Fifth Avenue's owner's representative for leasing and marketing.

"We will be launching a very direct and highly focused program with our clients and contacts throughout Europe and Japan," said Marcus Rayner, associate partner of Weatherall Green & Smith's New York office.

The 52-story office building was designed by internationally-acclaimed architects Kohn Pedersen Fox, and has its primary entrance on 56th Street just west of Fifth Avenue in the highly-desirable Plaza district.

712 Fifth Avenue contains 458,731 square feet of total leasable area., with 9,000 square feet floors in the tower and 12,000-square-foot floors in the base, all of which can be subdivided.

The building's Fifth Avenue entrance opens directly into the new five-floor flagship store of world-renown retailer Henri Bendel, whose operations are situated behind three meticulously restored and reconstructed, landmarked, neo-classical townhouse facades.

With dramatic views of Central Park, 712 Fifth Avenue has attracted tenants from Japan, England, Germany and France, such as Christian Dior, Grand Metropolitan PLC, Prestige International and Hengeler Mueller Weitzel Wirtz.

One of 712's most attractive amenities, Rayner noted, is shared conference center which will accommodate tenants' needs for meeting and entertainment facilities.

In addition, 712 Fifth Avenue features 24-hour building service, a concierge, and state-of-the-art security, elevator and life safety systems, as well as direct metering of electricity, and 24-hour, seven-day-a-week climate control.
