NEW YORK, Jan. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- RFR Realty LLC today announced that Arden Asset Management has signed a 17,500-square-foot full-floor lease renewal at 375 Park Avenue, also known as the Seagram Building. Founded in 1993 by Averell H. Mortimer, Arden Asset Management, which specializes in providing alternative investment solutions, including creating and managing portfolios of hedge funds using a research-driven investment process, has been a tenant in the landmark building since 2005 and agreed to renew its headquarters lease on the 32nd floor for an additional 10 years.

"The level of leasing activity at 375 Park Avenue for year-end 2013 totaled over 100,000 square feet, and that momentum has persisted into 2014," said Steve Morrows, executive vice president and director of leasing at RFR Realty LLC, who represented the ownership in-house in the lease negotiations. "The commitment with Arden Asset Management is a testament to the building's outstanding pedigree, as it houses some of the world's finest private equity firms, hedge funds and family offices. In order to best serve these premier tenants, we will launch several building enhancements throughout the year, including a 375 Park Avenue Limited Edition Prebuilt Collection that will offer unique high-end designs tailored to the personality and identity of each tenant as well as an amenity space with a 10,000-square-foot terrace."

The deal with Arden Asset Management comes on the heels of a new commitment with David Martinez-owned investment firm Fintech, which has been a tenant in the landmark building since 1994 and renewed its lease on the 38th floor for an additional 10 years.  

Designed by noted architects Ludwig Miles van der Rohe and Philip Johnson, 375 Park Avenue was completed in 1958 and remains today one of the finest examples of the functionalist design aesthetic and a masterpiece of corporate modernism. Acquired by RFR in 2000, the building has since undergone a comprehensive capital improvements campaign, which included a broad elevated plaza along Park Avenue that features symmetrically designed fountains and landscaping, a 150-car parking garage with waiting lounge and two of Manhattan's most exclusive restaurants: Four Seasons and Brasserie. 375 Park Avenue offers refined luxury office interiors with panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline coupled with 24/7 building access, convenient proximity to public transportation and a prestigious tenant roster that includes some of the world's great financial powerhouses and Fortune 500 companies.

Arden Asset Management was represented in the lease negotiations by Brian Goldman, Neil Goldmacher and Erik Harris on Newmark Grubb Knight Frank.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
