NEW YORK, December 21, 2001 - CL&M client Garban LLC signed a new lease for 111,000 square feet to replace its office space that was destroyed on September 11. The company plans a state-of-the-art initial installation, including the placement of an emergency power system on the mechanical floor of the building and communications equipment on the roof, to be financed partly by a substantial work letter received from its new landlord. Garban has the option to take an additional 11,000 square feet in its new building, as well as a right of first refusal on additional space. Cully Irving and Melinda Poon represented Garban on the lease, which was negotiated and signed within two weeks after the initial draft was received in our office.
