Three years after its inception, Town Residential embarked into opening its tenth outpost based in Meatpacking District. The new office space complemented Town’s line of work due to its strategic location. As so, it provided access to residential neighborhoods located along the Hudson River.
Town obtained access to the 7,100-square-foot office space through leasing it for a duration of 15 years. Apart from its serene ambiance, the office featured access to a private deck positioned on top of the building and 16-foot ceilings. According to Heiberger, the new space made Town the only brokerage firm with an outdoor space for meeting customers and working. As so, it created a significant difference between Town Residential and other players in the real estate brokerage industry.
The area around the 446W.14th St. office space appealed to Town because of its strategic location. It had grown into one of the most sought-after neighborhoods. Heiberger cited that Town viewed the entire West Side as a continuous band of residential areas or neighborhoods. Consequently, the representatives based in the new space were expected to put more focus on markets between Hudson Yards and TriBeCa.
Towns’ close association with Thor Equities contributed profoundly to securing the lease for the Meatpacking District-based office. Thor Equities, Town Residential’s parent investor, served as the landlord of the building during the deal.
