NYC Announces 140,000 Square Feet of New and Renewed Leases

June 23, 2022

Lease terms include $4.2 million in annualized, straight-line rent and almost 12 years of weighted-average lease term

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- New York City REIT, Inc. (NYSE: NYC) (“NYC” or the “Company”) announced today that it has executed one new lease and three lease renewals in its pure-play New York City portfolio. A new, 4,700 square foot lease with a five-year term was signed at 9 Times Square, replacing former Knotel space. In addition, NYC executed three long-term renewals: two fifteen-year leases with entities controlled by City Parking for the parking garages the Company owns at 200 Riverside and 400 East 67th Street and one 10-year1 lease renewal with the Government Services Administration (“GSA”), a 48,000 square foot lease at 123 William Street. The GSA and parking garage leases commence on or before July 1, 2022, and the lease at 9 Times Square is expected to commence on August 1, 2022.

“The leases we have recently signed continue the leasing momentum we’ve seen in recent quarters,” said Michael Weil, CEO of NYC. “Combined, these leases require tenants to pay over $4.2 million in annualized, straight-line rent (“SLR”), $1 million of which is net new SLR, and have a weighted-average remaining lease term of almost 12 years. The 9 Times Square lease completes the replacement of space formerly leased to Knotel at this property with a new, rent-paying tenant. The parking garage leases are with entities controlled by an experienced, rent-paying operator who has been operating our garages on a short-term basis since we terminated the previous operator last year. Our proactive asset management strategy and the relationships we have built with our tenants continue to yield strong leasing activity, as demonstrated by the new 15-year lease agreement.”
