NEW YORK -- April 24, 2013
SL Green Realty Corp. (NYSE: SLG) and The Moinian Group today announced that
CVS Caremark, the largest integrated pharmacy in the United States, has signed
a new 15-year lease for 21,159 square feet covering the vacant portion of the
ground and a portion of the second floors at 3 Columbus Circle, the

Occupying the entire block between Broadway and Eighth Avenue, the
newly-redeveloped, 26-story building commands a premier Westside location,
steps from the roundabout at Columbus Circle. SL Green together with partner,
The Moinian Group, recently completed a building-wide redevelopment that

Columbus Circle,” said Steven Durels, Director of Leasing and Real Property at

benefits from close proximity to Columbus Circle, tremendous pedestrian
traffic from seven subway lines, nearby construction of three new hotels and
some of the world’s most expensive residential condominiums, together with New
York’s first soon-to-be-constructed Nordstrom’s.
