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.
