NEW YORK — Jones Lang LaSalle was selected by building owner Spear Street Capital to manage 315 Park Avenue South. The firm will provide a full range of property management services for the Class A, 325,000-square-foot office building.

The JLL team handling the property management assignment will be led by Matt Duthie, managing director, and Patrick Conway, general manager.

“The purchase of 315 Park Avenue South was Spear Street Capital’s first acquisition in New York,” said Linda Aronson, managing director and head of property management for JLL’s suburban tri-state markets. “This new property management assignment expands our ongoing relationship with the company. JLL already manages two office properties for Spear Street Capital in New Jersey as well as office buildings in Texas and California.”
