Leading wealth management firm will occupy the entire 18th floor of the prominent Midtown property
NEW YORK, NY (July 6, 2020) – Fisher Brothers today announced the completion of a 30,000-square-foot, multi-year lease with BBR Partners, LLC. The lease signing highlights continued demand for well-positioned Midtown office space, despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The wealth management firm will occupy the entire 18th floor of Park Avenue Plaza, located at 55 East 52nd Street in Midtown East.
BBR Partners continues to prioritize modern, functional space to support the recruitment and retention of talented professionals.

Experience and innovation in the workplace have never been more important than now, as the City returns to the workplace.”
