200 5th Avenue reaches 100% occupancy with Tiffany & Co expansion

According to the NY Post, Tiffany & Co took on another full floor at 200 5th Avenue (between 23rd and 24th Street) for their headquarters, bringing the Madison Square Park adjacent building to 100% occupancy.

The building was gutted a few years back for a much needed modernization, and even with failed bank Lehman Brothers as a partial owner (whose stake was sold) they were able to land Grey Group as the first marquis tenant, followed by Eataly, then Tiffany & Co, and Marimekko in the retail space.

Overall it has been an incredible success with absolute top-tier tenants that improve the neighborhood.
