Hannigan and O’Connell of Choyce Peterson negotiate 39,649 s/f lease


Purchase, NY Choyce Peterson, Inc. finalized lease negotiations on behalf of Triton International an intermodal container leasing corporation, for a 39,649 s/f office at 100 Manhattanville Rd. This transaction represents the largest office relocation lease on the east side of Westchester County completed in 2022. Choyce Peterson principal John Hannigan and vice president Charlene O’Connell represented Triton International in this transaction.

With Triton’s lease expiring at 100 Manhattanville Rd., they reached out to Hannigan who had represented them in their previous lease renewal at this address. Triton then appointed Choyce Peterson as their exclusive representative based in part on their favorable past experience, tenant representation expertise and distinctive knowledge of the area market. Hannigan and O’Connell met with the Triton team to understand their needs and the estimated office size they wanted to establish for their largest global office.

Regional managing principal Julia Lindh of MKDA Architects also joined the team to optimize the new space design and layout to bring Triton’s vision of their future workspace to fruition. She had previously designed the existing Triton space at 100 Manhattanville Rd. After a series of meetings with Triton executives, she calculated the square footage required for a new space and created concept plans for a collaborative, modern office.

Attorney Dale Lois of Levine & Levine, PLLC advised Triton on the legal aspects of the transaction. Glenn Walsh, executive managing director of Newmark, represented the landlord, RPW Group, in this transaction. RPW Group purchased 100 Manhattanville Rd. in October 2019.

Hannigan said, “It was an honor to once again work with the Triton team on this exciting project. After a comprehensive search and consideration of various other prospective locations, Triton chose to relocate within 100 Manhattanville Rd. and create a brand-new workspace designed and built exactly to their needs.”

“We are very pleased to have worked with John and Charlene on this project. With their support, we were able to negotiate favorable lease terms customized to our specific needs. We look forward to creating a new office space that perfectly captures our culture and vision for a more collaborative work environment. Their professional guidance was key to providing us with the best results for our needs,” said Chelsea Hogan, SVP, chief human resources officer for Triton.
