Soho Properties acquired 31 West 27th Street for $45.7 million in 2009. The building was later sold to the Walnut Hill Group in 2012. The 12th floor at the property was originally leased to Edaw, an architect-planner acquired by AECOM in 2005. Since the time of the acquisition, AECOM has been paying in the mid-$40s per square foot for the space. In an attempt to consolidate space, AECOM leased over 90,000 square feet at 100 Broad Street last year, paying rent in the mid-$30s per square foot, according to CompStak’s data. Freddie Fackelmayer and Adam Foster of CBRE represented the sublandlord in the lease. The brokers declined to comment on the deal.
