SL Green to Buy Sapir’s iconic 11 Madison Ave. for $2.6B

 

Stephen Green’s SL Green Realty is reportedly set to acquire the iconic office tower 11 Madison Avenue in Manhattan for $2.6 billion. The deal, first reported by the New York Post, could well be the biggest real estate transaction in the history of New York City. If the deal goes through, it would mean a huge windfall for the current owners, Sapir Organization and the minority partner, CIM Group.

11 Madison Ave. is a premier office property located in the Madison Square Park area of Midtown Manhattan. The tower was completed in three phases between 1932 and 1950. Between 1994 and 1997, the property underwent a major renovation at an estimated cost of $400 million.

In 2003, Sapir Organization paid about $675 million to MetLife for the iconic office building. CIM Group bought a stake in the property in 2010. Sapir and minority partner CIM Group decided to place the property on the market last month.
