The total leasing spans over 40 transactions, several of which were completed in the White Plains, Tarrytown and Rye Brook submarkets. The Newmark’s Lawrence A. Ruggieri, Glenn Walsh, Gregory Frisoli and Anthony Nusbaum participated in the transactions.
“Since the beginning of the year, we have witnessed tremendous demand and leasing activity within the Westchester County office market, as evidenced by the team’s closing of over 200,000 square feet of office leases,” said Ruggieri. “Driven by a compilation of factors, including lease expirations, needs for a larger space as employees return to office and the continuance of flight to quality.”

77,299 square feet signed in Rye Brook, with notable tenant Sonic Healthcare USA, Inc signing a long-term renewal for over 65,000 square feet comprising of the entire building located at 760 Westchester Avenue.
“As we look to the second half of the year, we are eager to continue this momentum across the county as we are still experiencing an increase in activity throughout Westchester as compared to previous years,” added Walsh.
