Indicative of the continued transformation of the Garment District to neighborhood with a diverse tenant base, In Touch Solutions, a digital marketing company serving the pharmaceuticals and healthcare industries, has committed to a 17,000 s/f office lease at 469 Seventh Avenue.
Marc Schoen and Brian Neugeboren of Savitt Partners arranged the long-term transaction on behalf of In Touch Solutions.
Eric Meyer and Marty Meyer from Colliers International represented building ownership. The asking rent at 469 Seventh Avenue was $56-psf.
Headquartered in Kansas City, In Touch Solutions will relocate its New York City operations from 1001 Avenue of the Americas, where the company currently occupies 6,000 s/f of space.
According to Schoen, “In Touch Solutions outgrew its existing space on Avenue of the Americas and the newly-built office space on the entire 10th floor of 469 Seventh Avenue provided the ideal solution for its current and future growth needs.”
469 Seventh Avenue is a 17-story property owned by Martin and Eric Meyer and Dan Shavolian, of Foremost Real Estate.
In Touch is the second new media tenant to sign in the building this summer. Digital agency, Situation Interactive, also signed a long-term lease for the entire 13th floor.
“The Garment District has completed reinvented itself, attracting a diversity of tenants we had never seen before,” said Eric Meyer, a senior managing director with Colliers International Tri-State.
“Advertising, marketing, and digital media companies are increasingly taking space in the Garment District because of its central location, 24/7 activity, and wealth of shopping, hotels, and nightlife.
“The Garment District is one of the hottest Manhattan neighborhoods.”
Additional tenants in the Garment District building include small accounting firms, advertising agencies, and administrative offices and meeting rooms for the New York City Police Department’s Manhattan South Traffic Enforcement division.
