RM Friedland, the largest privately held commercial real estate brokerage company in Westchester County, Wednesday unveiled its new, office suite in Harrison. As a demonstration of its belief in a resurgence in the office market, RM Friedland has signed a long term lease at this new 8,300 square-foot space at 440 Mamaroneck Avenue in Harrison.
The company, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, also recently announced that Chris O’Callaghan, one of Westchester’s most prominent commercial brokers, will lead its newly formed Office Brokerage Division. The company specializes in industrial, investment, retail and office brokerage in the New York Metro Area.
“Opening a new office during a pandemic certainly has its challenges, but long-term, our decision to relocate to new slightly larger space signifies our commitment to the Westchester market and the Westchester economy. It also underscores our belief that there is no replacement for face-to-face collaboration in the workplace – a lesson we hope will be shared by the thousands of businesses already in the county and those we will convince to move and expand here,’’ said Sarah Jones-Maturo, President, RM Friedland.
She added, “The opening of this space coincides with our 50-year anniversary, and I believe this next chapter will be our most exciting one yet.”
Westchester County Board of Legislators Chairman Ben Boykin and Westchester County Office of Economic Development Director Bridget Gibbons, who were among those who attended the event, said they appreciated RM Friedland’s commitment to Westchester. Gibbons added that commercial real estate was a business sector of great importance for the county.
The new space was a collaborative design with most of the building materials such as the flooring, lighting and ceiling tiles being environmentally sustainable. The heart of the space is a community wall filled with artwork contributed by each RMF team member.
