100 William Street’s Building Website Becomes A Critical Marketing Tool for Leasing Pre-Built Office Space in Lower Manhattan
Lighthouse Real Estate Management Launches Metropole Worldwide’s Online Property Management Platform for its Premier New York City Building
NEW YORK, NY (October 18, 2004) -- Metropole Worldwide LLC, a leading provider of real estate transaction and marketing software and Lighthouse Real Estate Management, LLC. a New York real estate investment and management firm, announced today that Lighthouse has deployed Metropole's end-to-end online property management platform to market its premier lower Manhattan property, 100 William Street.
Utilizing Metropole's suite of Metropole360 property management applications, 100 William Street now automatically publicizes its building services, property amenities, and leasing opportunities to a global audience of prospective tenants and brokers across the Internet via its website (www.100williamst.com). The 100WilliamSt.com website enables leasing prospects to virtually tour the entire building, from its dramatic four-story atrium lobby to its pre-built office spaces, by viewing a series of interactive 360° pictures and individual listing brochures. The site also enables prospective tenants to learn about the surrounding neighborhood and special downtown rental incentive packages.
100WilliamSt.com is powered by a robust listing management system that also provides Newmark & Company (the office leasing agent of 100 William Street) with the ability to promote and track available listings in real-time to its database of prospects. Available space is immediately searchable on the website and "print ready" interactive 360° listing brochures are automatically e-mailed to prospective tenants and brokers. In turn, the leasing team at 100 William Street easily tracks the marketing progress through Metropole360's listing reports to quickly ascertain which spaces are "hot" and which prospects are most interested in them.
"The 100WilliamSt.com website, offered by Metropole, gives us the competitive edge in marketing our quality pre-built spaces and tenant services," says Louis Sheinker, Principal of Lighthouse Real Estate Management.
"100WilliamSt.com enables us to market 100 William Street more effectively and efficiently by enabling prospective tenants to make decisive and informed decisions thereby ultimately shortening the leasing cycle," says Jonathan Fanuzzi of Newmark & Company
"By enabling companies like Lighthouse Real Estate Management and Newmark & Company to reach more potential tenants and target prospects more effectively, Metropole is delivering on the promise of the Internet to streamline the communications between tenants, brokers, and owners," says Robert Siegel, Chief Executive and Founder of Metropole Worldwide, who adds "the Metropole360 platform was designed by real estate professionals for real estate professionals, to empower them with the ability to effortlessly, and economically, create instant real estate listing brochures and premium building websites."
