Goldman Sachs Eyeing Amaranth Digs?

Jan 22 2007 | 10:17am ET

Unconcerned by the lingering stench of disaster, Goldman Sachs may be interested in more than just a few Amaranth Advisors traders: It may be interested in its home.

The Wall Street giant may lease up to 200,000 square feet of office space at the Greenwich American Center, the 600,000-square-foot building at 1 American Lane in Greenwich, Conn., that Amaranth is in the process of vacating, the Fairfield County Business Journal reports.

Goldman already has a small wealth management office in the hedge-fund hotspot. Real estate has been very much on the firm’s mind for the last several years, with its new lower Manhattan headquarters currently under construction and a Jersey City, N.J., skyscraper that opened in 2004.

The firm reportedly leases some 4 million square feet in the New York area.
