Sub-Lessors Extract Value from Mega Tenants
Citigroup to Value Line
Citigroup is subletting portions of its 300,000 SF at 485 Lexington to several tenants at large discounts. One example is a recent four year sublease of the entire ninth floor to Value Line with rents in the mid-$30s. Last year Xerox sub leased three floors from Citi with rents in the forties. Citi paid over $50 PSF when the original lease was signed in 2005. Other subleases in the building include New Oak Capital which sub leased the 25th floor from Accenture paying rent in the forties.
