1585 Broadway


View Larger Map
1585 Broadway is the headquarters of Morgan Stanley, on the west side of Broadway, north of Duffy Square in Midtown Manhattan.
In 1992, Hines was hired as asset manager and advisor to a consortium of banks which held the mortgage to 1585 Broadway, the 42-story, 1.3 million square-foot (121,000 square-meter) office tower located in New York City's Times Square.
The building is featured in the movie Down to Earth as the skyscraper from which a failing businessman jumps to his death.
Morgan Stanley bought the building for $176 million in August 1993 and moved in two years later. Currently, it uses the building as its world headquarters.
The original developer of 1585 Broadway filed for bankruptcy the previous year leaving unfinished building construction, stalled leasing, and strained tenant relationships. After the bank group gained control of the asset through the bankruptcy process, Hines took over the on site property and construction management as well as the marketing, leasing and disposition activities.
