Since 1990, Rosenberg has been involved in a number of the largest and most complex developments in New York. From 1992 through 1998, Rosenberg worked on the development of the Conde Nast Building at 4 Times Square. Rosenberg led the acquisition of the site and the $420m construction loan, while working on the Conde Nast Lease (800,000 sq ft) and the Skadden Arps Lease (770,000 sq ft). In addition, he was intimately involved in the development of the project and led the permanent financing of $620m. From 2002 to 2008, Rosenberg led the site assemblage and acquisition for the Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park. He negotiated the Joint Venture between Bank of America and the Durst Organization, assisted in the lease negotiations with Bank of America (1,500,000 sq ft), led the construction financing team ($650m of liberty bonds and $250m of taxable financing) and led the permanent loan of $1.3 billion (consisting of $650m of liberty bonds and $650m of taxable loans). In 2011, Rosenberg led the negotiations of the Joint Venture, on behalf of the Durst Organization with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, including the negotiation of the lease of the Broadcast Facility at 1 World Trade Center.
