Fanuzzi says that the rent has increased dramatically over thepast 12 months with the promise of completing the program and"should continue to grow." He adds that the program should becomplete by July 2009.


Fanuzzi explains to that the building's improvementsare part of a wider $1.5 billion capital improvements programthroughout the W&H Properties portfolio. The improvements arecomplete at the four original properties in the portfolio, and areunderway at the five buildings--including 1350 Broadway--that wereadded to the portfolio in 2007.


"The high quality that will result from these renovations is thesame as that of the original properties in the W&Hportfolio--60 E. 42nd St., 501 Seventh Ave., 1359 Broadway and 250W. 57th St.--where the capital improvement programs are complete,"notes Fanuzzi. "All of these properties underwent top-to-bottomrenovations, which transformed them," he continues.

The building, which contains 25 stories, offersconvenient access to the Long Island Rail Road, Metro North, NewJersey Transit, Amtrak, Port Authority, PATH and fifteen subwaylines.
