GFP Real Estate Leases 1M-SF of Office Space in 2017

The real estate firm formerly known as Newmark Holding celebrated its new name in 2017 — and over a million square feet of space leased at its office properties. GFP took its new name to prevent confusion with Newmark Knight Frank, now preparing an initial public offering.

"We experienced phenomenal leasing momentum in 2017."
