NEW YORK CITY—The Permanent Mission of Japan to the United Nations signed a 50,391 square-foot lease to occupy the entire 27th, 28th and 29th floors of the Fisher Brothers' office tower at 605 Third Ave. An industry source tells GlobeSt.com that the asking rent for the 15-year lease is in the mid-$70s per square foot.

The Permanent Mission of Japan represents the government of Japan in conducting diplomacy to achieve foreign policy goals. Its relocation from 866 UN Plaza is scheduled for early 2019.

Cushman & Wakefield's Mariyon Robertson and Junji Miyake represented the mission and Fisher Brothers was represented in-house by Ken Fisher, Marc Packman, Jack Whalen Sr. and Clark Briffel, as well as by Cushman & Wakefield's Bruce Mosler, Louis D'Avanzo, Michael Baraldi, Andrew Ross and Maria Travlos.
