The Rudin Family has just completed a full floor office lease with a nationally prominent architectural firm at 55 Broad Street in Lower Manhattan.
H3 Hardy Collaboration Architecture LLC has signed a 10-year, 10,779 square-foot lease comprising the entire 19th floor of the 30-story, 400,000 square-foot building for its New York headquarters.
The company, which is known for its work on such notable local projects as the restoration of Pier A, the Brooklyn Academy of Music and Lincoln Center Theater, expects to relocate from 902 Broadway in the Flatiron District in the second quarter of 2015.

Scott Vinett and Michael Higgins of Jones Lang LaSalle represented H3 Hardy in the long-term transaction, while Kevin P. Daly, Vice President of
