The sale of Progressive’s headquarters at 131 West 33rd Street in Manhattan was featured in Commercial Observer. You can read the piece here.

Progressive, the largest lender to taxi cab medallions, purchased the seventh and a portion of the eighth floor in October 2009 for $6.9 million and the remaining portion of the eighth floor in September 2011 for $4.2 million, Rudder said. The union utilized the space and as part of the sale has leased it back for a year before the union moves in.

“Progressive Credit Union’s initial $445-per-rentable-square-foot purchase in 2009 and ultimate sale at $945-per-rentable-square-foot today highlights the appreciation of the office condominium market over the past eight years,” Rudder said.
