    David Peyser Sportswear has signed a nearly 24,000-square-foot lease for the entire fifth floor of the Garment Center building 463 Seventh Avenue.

    David Peyser did a seven-year deal for the space for rental rates around $35 per square foot.

    The lease came after David Peyser acquired the tenant that previously occupied the space, the women’s coat label Junior Gallery, early last month.

    463 Seventh Avenue

    David Levy, a real estate broker with the services firm Adams & Co. who arranged the transaction, said that David Peyser wasn’t obligated to inherit the floor through the acquisition because it had only purchased the brand and not all of Junior Gallery’s operations and liabilities.

    “We wound up canceling Junior Gallery’s lease and signing a new deal with David Peyser for the floor directly because they wanted to keep the space,” Mr. Levy said.

    David Peyser has about 14,000 square feet at another building managed by Adams & Co., Mr. Levy said, 1071 Avenue of the Americas, where it occupies the entire 12th floor, but wanted to maintain Junior Gallery’s office at 463 Seventh Avenue to keep the brands separate. One of David Peyser’s best known labels is the brand Weatherproof.

    “I think they could have squeezed everyone into the roughly 24,000 square feet at 463 Seventh Avenue and left 1071 Avenue of the Americas but they felt that it would be better to preserve the identity of each brand and keep them separate,” Mr. Levy said. “Plus now they probably have a little extra space to grow rather than be packed together.”

    Mr. Levy said that 463 Seventh Avenue, which is on the corner of 35th Street, has increasingly become attractive to office tenants in recent years because of its proximity to Penn State but he has been reluctant to change the mix of occupants at the property, which consists mainly of apparel companies.

    “I don’t want to put an accounting firm next to a clothing company on the same floor, it’s just not fair to the apparel tenant,” Mr. Levy said. “One of the reasons why people come to this building is because of its mix of tenants in the industry and the atmosphere that creates. If we started diluting that by adding office tenants it would almost detract from their ability to be successful.”

    Mr. Levy said he has brought office tenants into the roughly 400,000-square-foot property but only selectively.

    “We did a deal with New York Presbyterian for the entire 10th floor, which they use for administration offices and book keeping,” Mr. Levy said. “They wound up expanding to take the entire 14th floor as well. But we did those deals because they were for the full floors.”

    Key Apparel plans to utilize the space to house general and executive offices as well as a showroom.

    "It's really one of the few buildings that are dedicated to apparel," said David Levy, a principal at Adams & Co. Real Estate. "It used to be mostly outer weigh,t but it has changed to mixed. Some men's, some women's, some childrenswear. Even some very expensive. It's become a mixed bag of apparel."

    Mr. Levy is no a stranger to the neighborhood and has exclusively represents several buildings in the Garment District including the Menswear Center at 42 West 39th Street and the Childrenswear Center at 34 West 33rd Street and, of course, 463 Seventh Avenue. Brokers from BNSK Real Estate and Sinovsky Real Estate were representing Key Apparel in the negotiation.

    The asking rent for the office was $39 per square foot and the lease duration was set for five years.

    "We are fully occupied," said Mr. Levy.

    The building recently closed on two deals that brought the building to 100 percent occupancy. 463 Seventh Avenue boasts a strong tenant list including Redcats USA, Bernado Fashion, and G-111 Apparel Group as well as a Federal Express and Andrew's Coffee Shop on the ground floor retail space.

    Bernardo Fashions has signed a six-year, 11,000-square-foot lease renewal at The Outerwear Building at 463 Seventh Avenue, where landlord Arsenal Company is resisting an influx of creative tenants creeping into the Fashion Corridor from Midtown South, The Commercial Observer has learned.

    “A lot of the buildings in the area are staying away from apparel, but we are embracing it – so for us it was important that we retain this tenant,” said David Levy of Adams & Company, who represented both parties in the transaction. “The whole transit triangle area is gaining a lot of momentum from more creative companies that are now heading towards our area from Midtown South.”

    Asking rents were $44 per square foot for the space.  The 22-story building has 24/7 access and security in addition to newly-renovated elevators and windows.  Notable tenants include OSP Group, Henry Doneger Associates, ADJMI Apparel Group and J. Mendel, which host showrooms and offices throughout the building.  Retail tenants include Federal Express, Andrew's Coffee Shop.

    Bernardo Fashions designs and sells outerwear for men and women. It serves customers through its retail stores. The company was founded in 1989 and is based in New York, New York with offices in London, United Kingdom; Hangzhou, China; and Hanoi, Vietnam.

    The brand prides itself on creating “high quality, easy to care for garment with a high fashion twist… go-to pieces for the modern woman with an active lifestyle,” and this year extended the brand with a launch into the active wear market with Bernardo Active.

    The nearly 480,000-square-foot building is located just steps from Penn Station, major subway lines, Macy's, the Port Authority, the General Post Office, and Madison Square Garden.  New tenants receive brand-new, double-glazed windows.

    “The landlord keeps the property in impeccable condition,” Mr. Levy said, noting that HVAC, air conditioning and elevator systems are renovated and in tip-top shape.

    Comint Leather Goods has renewed its lease at the fully occupied Outerwear Building.

    The family owned and operated outerwear manufacturer will continue to call its 6,739-square-foot office at 463 Seventh Avenue home. The term of the lease was not disclosed, but Comint Leather Goods plans to continue to utilize its space for general offices and a showroom for its products.

    “463 Seventh Avenue is centrally located on Seventh Avenue between 35th and 36th Street, a prime showroom location for an apparel tenant to grow their brand,” said David Levy of Adams & Co. “The building allows us to provide our clients with valuable space at the right price, creating an ideal opportunity.”

    Mr. Levy brokered the deal on behalf of the landlord, the Arsenal Company LLC, and the tenant. Asking rent was $42per square foot.

    The influx of creative and tech tenants in the city has increased prices in Midtown South and pushed some firms to look for cheaper rents, notably around 463 Seventh Avenue where it has been predominantly fashion and apparel tenants.

    The 22-story building, however, has maintained its ground and remained largely apparel-occupied. Though some non-outerwear tenants have slipped in over the years, likely due to the outward push from other buildings in the area that have taken in creative tenants.

    “It’s really one of the few buildings that are dedicated to apparel,” said Mr. Levy in response to an earlier deal. “It used to be mostly outerwear, but it has changed to mixed. Some men’s, some women’s, some childrenswear. Even some very expensive. It’s become a mixed bag of apparel."

    Mr. Levy is the exclusive broker for a number of apparel buildings including the Menswear Center at 42 West 39th Street and the Childrenswear Center at 34 West 33rd Street.

    David Peyser Sportswear Inc. has renewed its lease at 1071 Avenue of the Americas.

    The manufacturer of high-end outerwear and sportswear will add 3,545 square feet on the 8th floor to its 14,000-square-foot occupancy on the 12th floor at Ten Seventy One Associates' building, spanning a total of 17,545 square feet. The deal comes on the heels of the company's growth and expansion efforts of its mens outwear brand, Weatherproof

    "This fashionable location has proven to be beneficial for David Peyser Sportswear and we are pleased that they are expanding,” said David Levy, a principal of Adams & Co. “1071 Avenue of the Americas is an extremely attractive building as it is located in the heart of a cultural center with stunning views of Bryant Park."

    The company also leases a larger, 24,000-square-foot office at nearby 463 Seventh Avenue, another property in Adams & Co.'s portfolio. The two offices are divided based on brands owned by the company. A gallery operates out of the space at 463 Seventh Avenue, and WeatherProof runs its general offices and showrooms out of 1071 Avenue of the Americas. 

    Mr. Levy was instrumental in representing both the landlord and the tenant in the transaction. Asking rents for the deal were upward of $56 per square foot. 

    "The Transit Triangle is the newest 'hot' area in the city," added Mr. Levy.

    Both 1071 Avenue and the Americas and 463 Seventh Avenue fall within the triangle and have been active with leasing to traditional garment tenants as well as creative companies. Recent leases include Comint Leather Goods Inc., Knoles & Carter, and Henry Doneger at 463 Seventh Avenue and David Geller Associates and Joseph Industries Inc. at 1071 Avenue of the Americas.
