Wellness real estate and technology firm Delos is the first tenant to sign a lease at 860 Washington St., in the heart of Manhattan’s Meatpacking District. The firm’s new global headquarters will occupy the fourth and fifth floors of the 10-story mixed-use building, totaling 21,706 square feet of space, for a lease term of ten years.

Delos’ new office will be designed to improve productivity and creativity and will pursue WELL Certification – Platinum. The WELL Building Standard is the first to focus on enhancing people’s health through the built environment, and is provided by Green Building Certification Inc. (GBCI), the same organization that certifies LEED buildings.

Stuart Romanoff, Ross Eisenberg, Amy Fox, and Josh Goldsmith of Cushman & Wakefield represented the building owner in the lease deal, while Aaron Ellison and Joseph Armano of JLL represented Delos.

Co-developed by Property Group Partners and Romanoff Equities, 860 Washington is the only first-class building slated for completion in Midtown South in the next few years. The LEED Silver certified building incorporates ground-floor and second-floor retail space, a private, 1,580-square-foot terrace with views of the New York City skyline on the fourth floor and is due for completion in late 2015. James Carpenter Design Associates was in charge of the building’s design.

“Located just steps from the Whitney Museum, in the heart of the city’s most dynamic neighborhood, 860 Washington will offer an unmatched suite of functional and lifestyle amenities catering to tenants’ day-to-day needs,” Jeffrey Sussman, president of Property Group Partners, said. “The Meatpacking District has become one of the most sought-after neighborhoods, offering a wide range of amenities that enhance the livability of the neighborhood for the people who live and work there,” Stuart Romanoff, vice chairman of Cushman & Wakefield, added.
