Professional Experience

Arkady Smolyansky is a Senior Vice President in the New York City office of CBRE, the world’s largest commercial real estate firm. As a tenant representative specialist, Arkady advises a variety of local, national and international firms on evaluating and implementing strategic real estate plans. Arkady bases his practice on cultivating exclusive, long-term relationships with clients, an approach that has enabled him to structure a wide range of complex leasing transactions totaling nearly 5,000,000 square feet on behalf of tenants and landlords.

With extensive knowledge of the New York City real estate market, Arkady—an eight-time recipient of CBRE’s market leadership award—devises creative deals for his clients in the leasing, acquisition and disposition of commercial properties/office space, utilizing sophisticated relocation methods and occupancy cost reduction strategies. In addition to representing a strong roster of tenants, Arkady represents landlords on assets throughout Manhattan. He currently advises the LeFrak Organization as the leasing agent for 40 West 57th Street, a prestigious 850,000-sq.-ft. office property in the Plaza District, and he represents Boston Properties in leasing 399 Park Avenue, a prominent full-block 1.7 million-sq.-ft. building, as well as 599 Lexington Avenue, a one million-sq.-ft. office tower. He is also part of the teams that are repositioning the Olayan Group/RXR/Chelsfield’s 550 Madison Avenue, EQ Office’s(Blackstone's) 1740 Broadway and The Georgetown Company’s redevelopment at 787 Eleventh Avenue. Arkady‘s ability to understand the ramifications of a transaction from both the landlord and tenant side enables him to devise creative and effective real estate solutions for his clients.

Prior to joining CBRE’s Brokerage Services Group in 2008, Arkady participated in the firm’s highly competitive Wheel Program, an 18-month rotational program designed to give young brokerage professionals a well-rounded foundation in the commercial real estate industry. Arkady’s commercial real estate career began in 2005, as an intern for CBRE’s Investment Properties Group.

Arkady is a proud graduate of Fairleigh Dickinson University, where he was a four-year member of the Men’s Varsity Tennis team and founded the Finance Club, serving as President for several years. Arkady most recently founded and launched an annual scholarship fund at the University where he was also recognized as the top 50 Under 50 alumni leaders in business in 2015.  He emigrated from the former Soviet Union to the U.S. in 1989, previously lived in Italy and Austria, and frequently travels internationally.
