NEW YORK CITY—Lee & Associates NYC has added two retail veterans to its team.
Greg Tannor, former director at Cushman Wakefield, and Mark Kapnick, former SVP at SRS Real Estate Partners have joined the firm as EVPs and principals, forming the KT Group.
Tannor has more than 17 years of experience in commercial real estate, specializing in retail leasing, investment sales, and office leasing. In one of his most notable transactions, he secured the lease between ownership and Tesla Motors for its new global flagship location.
Tannor also has represented such key brands as Elie Saab, JC Penny, SoulCycle, and Primark in its 100,000-square-foot transaction at the American Dream Project.
Kapnick has more than 25 years in retail leasing and investment sales, specializing in hospitality. He has represented many of Manhattan’s landlords and has completed more than two million square feet of leasing and investment sales.
As a top producing broker at SRS, Kapnick most recently arranged the leasing of 60,000 square feet at the base of The Moinian Group’s newest luxury building, Sky.
Kapnick also was awarded REBNY’s “Most Significant Retail Deal of the Year” award in 2014 on behalf of Equity Office for Redefining Bryant Park, The Creation of a New Retail District with his former team. He is known for his extensive market knowledge and his ability to not only meet objectives but to go above and beyond.
“We are excited to welcome Mark and Greg to our team, as their understanding of the real estate market and their relationship with clients is unparalleled in this business,” says Managing Principal Peter Braus.
“They both bring a level of professionalism and experience that will augment our already strong retail group.”
Kapnick and Tannor’s KT Group will be responsible for continuing the growth of Lee NYC’s metro business. They will also focus on both tenant and landlord representation in an effort to strategically grow the platform.
