Brookfield is one of the largest institutional landlords in The City and a popular building owner among many hedge funds and financial services firms.  Following the disastrous aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, they were proud to e-mail the below flyer to tenants and commercial brokers. 

Ownership was pleased to announce that The Brookfield Place (formerly known as World Financial Center and roughly 8 million rsf), withstood Hurricane Sandy’s devastation and remained operationally sound throughout the storm. Unlike many other Downtown office buildings, they were able to retain power in all four of their towers and reopen for access on Wednesday.  

Additionally, the REIT is making up to 100,000 rsf of furnished, plug & play space available for displaced tenants in need- FREE OF CHARGE.  Details of this have yet to be released.

Unforunately, not every building was lucky enough to make it through the storm untouched.  If your office building was affected, feel free to request a short-term office space report of select relocation alternatives.

Brookfield owns the following assets:


One World Financial Center

Two World Financial Center

Three World Financial Center

Four World Financial Center

Winter Garden / WFC Retail

One Liberty Plaza

One New York Plaza


245 Park Avenue

300 Madison Avenue
