Professional Experience

Roshan Shah is an Executive Vice President in the Manhattan office of CBRE, the world’s largest commercial real estate services firm. Roshan advises local, national and international corporations and property owners on developing and executing their strategic real estate plans. His unique ability to understand real estate transactions from the perspective of both landlord and tenant enables him to formulate and implement effective solutions for his clients.

Roshan structures creative deals predominantly in the leasing, acquisition and disposition of commercial properties, but is experienced in handling a wide range of real estate transactions, which he has closed throughout the U.S. as well as in every major international market.

Roshan was involved in the landmark $1.8-billion purchase of 111 Eighth Avenue in New York City by a confidential multinational intranet-related technology client. The transaction represents the largest commercial real estate purchase by a tenant in U.S. history. That same year, he advised Deka Immobilien (one of Germany’s largest asset managers) on its $123-million acquisition of 19 West 44th Street, and collaborated with Shorenstein Properties–one of the largest privately held real estate firms in the U.S.–on the sale of 125 Park Avenue, a 651,000-square-foot office tower, to SL Green Realty Corp. for $330 million.

Roshan has long served as a real estate advisor to the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, and its Principals, on a multitude of real estate matters. Roshan also represents India’s two biggest corporations, Reliance Industries and Tata Group, on their real estate dealings throughout North America.

Roshan serves as leasing agent for Forest City Ratner on their two million-square-foot Downtown Brooklyn portfolio. In this capacity, he has played an instrumental role in the leasing of approximately one million square feet of office space. Roshan also represents MetLife, whose real estate investments surpass $55 billion, and is responsible for the leasing of 575 Fifth Avenue, a 520,000-square-foot Class A office property in Midtown Manhattan.
