Mizuho Americas signed a new lease for roughly 148,000 square feet at Rockefeller Group’s 1271 Avenue of the Americas in New York. Mizuho will occupy the second and third floors, as well as below-grade space in the 2.1-million-square-foot tower, located on the west side of Sixth Avenue, between 50th and 51st Streets in the center of Midtown.
Mizuho Americas is a subsidiary of Mizuho Financial Group. The company’s John Buchanan said, “Establishing 1271 Avenue of the Americas as our new US headquarters will allow us to better serve clients by bringing together Mizuho employees from multiple office locations in one space, thereby increasing synergies, optimizing resources and enhancing our execution capabilities.”
Savills Studley’s Mitchell Steir, Matthew Barlow, Steve Berliner and David Goldstein represented Mizuho. CBRE’s Mary Ann Tighe, Howard Fiddle, John Maher, Sarah Pontius, Evan Haskell and Dave Caperna advised Rockefeller Group.
