NEW YORK—The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has tapped Transwestern’s New York office to manage a portfolio of nearly 2 million sq. ft. spanning properties in the New York City area. These properties include:
- MTA’s New York City transit headquarters, located at 2 Broadway. Built in 1959, 2 Broadway is a 1.6 million-sq.-ft., class-A office tower in Manhattan’s Financial District. The building is slated to become the sole headquarters as the MTA consolidates over the next year.

- Two buildings in Mineola, N.Y., located at 242 and 250 Old Country Road.
