Conde Nast’s long-awaited commitment to
one million square feet at One World Trade
Center this past spring was a game-changing deal for Lower Manhattan and an
achievement for Stacom, the 104-story
tower’s leasing agent. Yet it wasn’t Stacom’s only
mega-lease of the past 12 months: she also represented tenant
Lazard in its 430,000-square-foot headquarters renewal and
expansion at 30 Rockefeller Plaza. Over a 30-year career, she has
been responsible for more than 40 million square feet of office
transactions ranging from gross and net leases to synthetic and
ground leases, build-to-suits and property acquisition and dispositions. She consistently ranks among C&W’s top producing
brokers nationally and in the New York region. “Many questioned the speed by which Manhattan office rents rebounded

could support the continued growth,” says Stacom. “Well,
Manhattan real estate is positioned to reach new rent heights in
this cycle.” Stacom’s success in the leasing arena is matched by
her commitment to the career development of young women,
including ire@l, a real estate program she founded in the business college at her alma mater, Lehigh University.
John Portman & Associates
As the president of an international architecture firm with offices in Atlanta and
Shanghai, Tan grasps the intricacies of
working with multinational design teams
on international mixed-use projects.
These require an understanding of indigenous
materials, local construction practices and an appreciation of
local culture and customs as they relate to and influence design.
Under her leadership, John Portman & Associates is best known
for large, urban mixed-use projects that serve as catalysts for
further development. Competitions and projects in Asia have
played a large role in keeping the firm busy over the past 12
months, and Tan predicts that Asia will continue to be a hot
market for architectural design. “As the populations of cities in
places like China and India grow, there is no place for developers to go but up,” she comments. Fluent in Chinese, English and
Filipino, Tan is well positioned to build on the firm’s 30-year history in the region, and sees herself leading the company for
years to come.
