Several of the world’s biggest tech companies have been ramping up their Manhattan real estate search in recent months. The latest news comes from Apple, who is reportedly seeking up to 750,000 square feet of new office space, according to The Real Deal. In February, 6sqft reported that the California-based company was close to securing space at 55 Hudson Yards, but those plans have changed. Sources told The Real Deal that Apple is now considering leases at neighboring 50 Hudson Yards, the Farley Post Office, and One Madison Avenue, with brokers Martin “Mack” Horner and Peter Riguardi of JLL leading the search.
Last December, SL Green announced plans to renovate its building at One Madison Avenue with an 18-floor addition and modern interiors. On Tuesday, CityRealty uncovered a few new renderings of the planned redevelopment, which is being designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox. The developer will reduce the 13-story building to its ninth floor and then add the 18 column-free floors above, as well as wraparound and rooftop terraces overlooking Madison Square Park.

The Nomad office tower that neighbors the Met Life Tower is getting a major makeover, SL Green announced Monday.

The real estate company said it will reduce the building to its ninth floor and create 18 additional column-free floors above. A rendering released on Monday shows off the planned glassy addition, as well as wraparound and rooftop outdoor terraces that will measure over one acre.
