Peter Johnson specializes in both Landlord and Tenant representation. Peter’s relevant agency experience includes 50 Hudson Street, a redevelopment in TriBeCa, and 1140 Avenue of the Americas, where he has played an integral part in repositioning the building as the premier boutique asset on Avenue of the Americas.

At 1140 Avenue of the Americas, Johnson spearheaded efforts to amenitize the building. His thoughts on Landlord trends with regards to renovating their buildings to incorporate amenities was recently published in Bureau. The building now boasts an amenity center on its Penthouse Floor (including its 3,000 SF terrace outfitted with soft seating and green space) and a third-party Virtual Concierge Service run by Luxury Residential firm, LIVunLtd. Since taking over the Leasing Agency in Q1 2019, the Avison Young team has successfully transacted over 45,000 RSF worth of leases in a three-month period, accounting for nearly 20% of the building.

Peter was recently awarded the Landlord representation assignment for 50 Hudson Street (a/k/a One Duane Park), which will include the building’s two new glass box floors totaling 10,000 RSF. The 50 Hudson Agency Team is repositioning and leasing this asset to one full building tenant that will execute a non-traditional, synthetic lease structure. Prior to listing the asset on CoStar, the Agency Team has solicited three proposals from prospective tenants through its proactive outreach.

Prior to joining Avison Young, Peter worked at Merrill Lynch for six years where he was part of a four-person financial advisory team that was consistently ranked in the top 100 by both Barron’s and Forbes. Peter leverages his ability to understand his client’s business and financial needs to create custom tailored strategies throughout the office lease process. Peter advises both his Landlord and Tenant Rep assignments with an analytical, thorough approach.
