The Rockefeller Group and Major League Baseball (MLB) announced the completion of a new lease for approximately 400,000-square-feet at 1271 Avenue of the Americas, the iconic 48-story office tower completed as part of the modern expansion of Rockefeller Center to the west side of Sixth Avenue.

MLB will occupy six floors of office space in the 2.1-million-square-foot building, which is located on the west side of Sixth Avenue between 50th and 51st Streets in the center of midtown.  MLB and MLB Advanced Media L.P. plan to consolidate employees at 1271 from separate locations in midtown and downtown, and are scheduled to take control of the space in 2018 with occupancy expected for 2019.

In 2016, the Rockefeller Group started a $600 million redevelopment of 1271 designed by the architectural firm Pei Cobb Freed & Partners.
