Al Roker‘s production company is suing its landlord over renovations to the NBC weather anchor’s West 53rd Street offices.
The TV forecaster had moved his branded entertainment division to 429 W. 53rd St. in 2008.
He received the landlord’s permission to transform the third floor — which consisted of “a bare open space” — into “executive and general offices for film editing and production activities,” according to his Manhattan Supreme Court suit.
But as Roker prepared to move out of the $407,00-a-year offices by the end of November, the landlord, an LLC, balked and said he’d have to demolish the build-out at his expense.
Roker insists the landlord doesn’t have the right under the lease to make him pay for the changes because the renovations were structural improvements.
He’s suing to keep his $100,000 security deposit and for other costs.
A lawyer for the LLC said his client had not yet been served with the suit.
