David Falk and Nick Berger of Newmark Knight Frank, exclusive leasing agents for 75 Ninth Ave., represented Jamestown.
“This was an exceptional opportunity for EMI Music Publishing to consolidate its operations and employees into one location in a neighborhood known for its energetic and creative atmosphere,” said Mr. Field, an executive vice president at Cushman & Wakefield.
“The building’s successful transformation has attracted many of the top media and communication firms in the city including The Food Network, NY1 News, Oxygen Media, and Major League Baseball Productions,” said David Falk, executive vice president and principal of Newmark Knight Frank. “We are excited to add industry leader EMI Music Publishing to the tenant roster.”
“Chelsea Market was an attractive option from a functional, operational and geographic standpoint,” said Mr. Brown, a director at Cushman & Wakefield. “EMI Music Publishing will fit well into the media-related tenant mix.”
