 SJP Properties today announced that Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT), the world's leading software company, has signed a long-term lease at 11 Times Square, the company's new, state-of-the-art 1.1-million-square-foot, LEED-Gold-certified office and retail tower in Midtown. The building is owned by a joint venture of SJP Properties and investors advised by Prudential Real Estate Investors.

The lease reflects Microsoft's commitment to establishing its presence within Manhattan's foremost transit hub location. Situated directly across from the Port Authority's bus terminal, 11 Times Square features direct subway access to all New York City destinations, and is only one subway stop from both Penn Station and Grand Central Terminal, the city's two major transportation hubs.

The lease also demonstrates Microsoft's focus on providing its employees with a high-performance, technologically superior work environment. From its LEED Platinum-level indoor air quality and highly efficient glass curtain wall, to its precedent-setting concrete core construction that protects the building's critical infrastructure and provides enhanced safety, 11 Times Square was developed as Midtown's most advanced new commercial tower, affording the latest in cutting-edge technology, security and energy-efficiency features.
