Skyline Developers announced that Glenn Horowitz Bookseller, Inc. will be relocating its Union Square office to 20 West 55th Street.
The Bookseller has signed a 15-year lease for the entire penthouse space, a total of 4,462 s/f.
“Glenn Horowitz is a great addition to our already prestigious roster of tenants, including LVMH, Kynikos, SunTrust Bank, and Benenson Funding Corp., at 20 West 55th Street,” said Orin Wilf, president of Skyline Developers.
“It is a pleasure to bring such a respected business to one of the city’s most distinguished office complexes.”
The privately-owned business, dealing in the purchase and sale of literary, historical, and art-related rare books, is relocating from 7 West 18th Street and will be using its new penthouse location for their executive offices and as a show room for their rare/high-end inventory.
David Greene, president of Brokerage Services at Murray Hill Properties represented the tenant, while Billy Cohen, executive vice president, Andrew Weisz, associate and Ryan Kass, senior managing director of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank represented the landlord in the transaction.
The asking rent on the space was $67 per square foot.
“The location of 20 West 55th Street is optimal for Glenn Howoritz Bookseller, Inc. because of its close proximity to a large group of publishers and art collectors in Midtown and the upper east side,” said Kass.
20 West 55th Street has an eight-story atrium that blends the limestone
townhouses and the modern 14-story tower.
