NEW YORK, Oct. 7, 2013 – The Rockefeller Group today announced the completion 
of a 187,000-square-foot lease with Mayer Brown LLP at 1221 Avenue of the 
Americas, the iconic 50-story office tower anchoring the western border of 
Rockefeller  Center between West 48th and West 49th Streets. 
Mayer Brown, a leading global legal services firm with a presence throughout 
the Americas, Europe and Asia, signed a long-term lease for the entire 11th 
through 14th floors of 1221 Avenue of the Americas.  The firm,  which has more 
than 200 lawyers in its New York office, will relocate to the building in late 
2014.   
Richard Spehr, partner-in-charge of Mayer Brown’s New York office, said, “We 
are thrilled with our impending move to 1221 Avenue of the Americas. Our new 
space in this premier building will be designed to serve the needs of our 
global clients  for years to come.” 
The tenant was represented by CBRE brokerage professionals Bob Flippin, Andrew 
Sussman, Anthony Dattoma and Lauren Crowley.  The Rockefeller Group was 
represented by an in-house team led by Edward J. Guiltinan, Sr., along with a 
Cushman  & Wakefield brokerage team led by Executive Vice Chairman John Cefaly. 
The lease brings total new leases at 1221 Avenue of the Americas in 2013 to 
282,648 square feet.  New leases and renewals in the building have totaled 
817,000 square feet since mid-2011.  Approximately 400,000 square feet of 
office space  is available at the building.  
“We are pleased that Mayer Brown elected to relocate to 1221 Avenue of the 
Americas,” said Mr. Guiltinan, vice president and head of leasing in New York 
for The Rockefeller Group.  “We’re encouraged by the strong demand for the 
remaining  available space in the building, as tenants in the market recognize 
the outstanding location, efficiency, amenities, prominence and overall 
desirability that 1221 offers.”  
Designed by Harrison Abramovitz & Harris, 1221 Avenue of the Americas was 
designed as one of four buildings constituting the modern expansion of 
Rockefeller Center on the west side of Sixth Avenue.  The building is 
distinguished by its  large, efficient floor plates and its expansive open-air 
plazas that surround the building on all four sides.  It is interconnected 
through a concourse level to all of Rockefeller Center and seven subway lines.  
The class-A building totals approximately 2.5  million square feet, and is 
among the largest buildings in Manhattan to achieve LEED®-EB certification by 
the U.S. Green Building Council.
