Thor Equities Achieves 100% Occupancy at Midtown Office Property

New York, NY, July 09, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Thor Equities Group, a global leader in real estate development, leasing, and management, is pleased to announce leases with Citizen M and Tin Drum, Inc., at 25 W. 39th Street in Manhattan. With the addition of these two tenants, the asset is now 100% occupied.  

Citizen M, a fully integrated owner-operator hotel brand with a presence in 18 cities, has signed a long-term lease for 12,000 square feet on the eleventh floor of Thor Equities’ historic property. Selected for the property’s ideal location and range of amenities, Citizen M looks to expand their portfolio and execute their mission in Manhattan where the brand currently operates two hotels. The second tenant to sign a long-term lease at 25 W. 39th Street is Tin Drum Inc., a technology collective encompassing designers, coders, artists, and scientists. The company will occupy 14,000 square feet on the fourth floor of the property. 


Constructed in 1907 as the Engineering Societies’ Building, 25 West 39th Street boasts a rich history and architectural significance. The property was funded by a $1.5 million contribution from Andrew Carnegie and once housed one of the world’s largest engineering libraries as well as a 1,000-seat auditorium. Members included luminaries such as Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla.

“We are excited to announce we have reached full occupancy at 25 W. 39th Street. This achievement reflects the dedication of our team, and our commitment to delivering high-quality spaces that promote collaboration and support professional success,” said Chairman of Thor Equities Group, Joe Sitt.

Thor’s recent activity includes the acquisition of several industrial assets across the United States and Mexico. In the last month in the United States, Thor acquired over 350,000 square feet of modern facilities in the sought-after Texas and New Jersey markets. In Mexico, Thor acquired 1.6M square feet in Saltillo and Ramos Arizpe. Thor’s Chairman, Joe Sitt, spoke again on Bloomberg TV’s Wall Street Week about his conviction in commercial real estate opportunities across Mexico, as well as investor interest in light of the recent election.
