Gus Delaporte 11/27 7:45am Twenty Recruitment Group has signed a four-year lease for 5,135 square feet on 26th floor at Sherwood Equities’ 370 Lexington Avenue, The Commercial Observer has learned. The tenant will pay rent starting in the low-$50s per square foot after a period of free rent, according to data from CompStak. Headquartered in London, Twenty Recruitment Group currently operates a New York office at 1140 Avenue of the Americas and expects to relocate by the middle of December. “The floor was in fantastic condition and they were able to take it with minimal work,” said Adam Weissleder, senior leasing agent at Sherwood Equities, who represented the landlord in-house. “They’re a great fit for the building and the layout worked well for them.” Acquired by Sherwood Equities in a joint venture with JPMorgan Asset Management in 2008, 370 Lexington Avenue has undergone extensive renovations to the lobbies, common corridors and systems. The building is currently 95 percent leased with asking rents in the low-$50s per square foot. “It’s a boutique building that caters to smaller tenants in the Grand Central market,” Mr. Weisslander noted. As reported by The Commercial Observer, Sherwood Equities closed on six new leases and eight renewals at 370 Lexington Avenue earlier this year. The new leases included a 3,621-square-foot deal for VINCI Concessions USA Inc. Twenty Recruitment Group began operating in New York in 2010.
