Cushman & Wakefield will market the property on behalf of Coca-Cola
New York, NY – December 10, 2018 – Cushman & Wakefield announced today that the firm has been retained on an exclusive basis to market 711 5th Ave., commonly known as the Coca-Cola Building, on behalf of the owner, The Coca-Cola Company. The property will be brought to market in early 2019.
Coca-Cola acquired 711 5th Ave. in 1983 as part of the company’s acquisition of Columbia Pictures. Coca-Cola has determined that it does not need to retain its investment in the building to support its activities in New York, according to the company. Coca-Cola and its bottling partner in the area, Liberty Coca-Cola Beverages, will continue to have a sizable presence in the greater New York metropolitan area.
The Cushman & Wakefield Institutional Capital Markets team of Doug Harmon, Adam Spies and Kevin Donner will lead the marketing efforts.
“711 5th Avenue is one of Manhattan’s best kept secrets, a premier boutique gem with a rich history that dates back to 1927,” said Doug Harmon, Chairman, Capital Markets, Cushman & Wakefield. “We look forward to working with The Coca-Cola Company as we seek a new owner for this world class offering.”
The 19-floor, mixed-use property is located on the southeast corner of 5th Avenue and East 55th Street. The building consists of 354,000 square feet and is primarily used for office and retail space.
