JLL represented the building owners, Monday Properties and Invesco, in five transactions, led by vice chairmen Frank Doyle and Paul Glickman. The release says the deal team included JLL executive vice presidents Jonathan Fanuzzi and David Kleiner, executive vice presidents, and Monday Properties president Brian Robin and the company's leasing director, Jordan Berger.
Here are the deals as per the press release posting:

The release says that the building has a 1.4 million-square-foot commercial office capacity.
Jonathan Fanuzzi discussed Jones Lang's long-term Helmsley Building strategy in the release: “We constructed a marketing center and devised a new campaign for 230 Park Avenue," he said, "and the market has been very receptive to our outreach. JLL has completed more than 300,000 square feet in leases at the building in the past six months.”
