JLL’s Integrated Facilities Management and industry expertise will benefit the complex and the support government operations to the various federal agencies housed within
Global real estate and professional services firm JLL recently announced that it is delivering integrated facilities management (IFM) and operations services to the Jacob K. Javits Federal Building Complex in New York City for the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA). The partnership is already operational.
With a rich history dating back to its opening in 1969, the Jacob Javits Federal Building is the tallest federal building in the U.S. at over 41 stories. Located at 26 Federal Plaza in the Civic Center neighborhood of Manhattan, the GSA complex has its own ZIP code and is home to many federal agencies. The complex is named for notable public servant and native New Yorker, Jacob Koppel Javits (1904-1986), who began his political career in 1947 after he was elected to U.S. House of Representatives. He later served as New York’s attorney general and completed four terms in the U.S. Senate, where he requested federal funding for the building that would eventually bear his name.
The JLL Government Facilities Management team including Monique Derrick, managing director, Government & Education; John Eagleeye, senior director, Government FM Development & Deployment; Elizabeth Ojeda, director, Transition Lead, Project & Program Execution, all supported by a large team of JLL and GSA industry experts, led the transition efforts for JLL. Karen Davide, senior director, Account Manager, is leading the team of 51 JLL industry professionals providing IFM and operational services.
We are honored and excited to be partnering with The Jacob K. Javits Federal Building Complex to deliver best-in-class facility management and operations services. By ensuring the smooth operation of this iconic complex, our facilities management team plays a pivotal role in supporting the work of federal agencies and advancing the mission of good governance.Monique Derrick, managing director, Government & Education
