“The Omni’s location is convenient to accommodate the firm’s client base in Nassau and Suffolk Counties, as well as those in New York City,” said Ted Stratigos, senior director of Cushman & Wakefield of Long Island, and the broker who represented Forchelli Curto. “The Omni was an ideal fit with the firm’s image, offering an accessible location in a well-managed, building and what is considered a trophy Long Island office building. RXR’s emphasis on quality amenities and attention to details is unprecedented.”
Partner Brian R. Sahn oversaw the firm’s selection process, and Mr. Sahn and partner Barbara Alesi, spearheaded Forchelli Curto’s lease negotiations.
