Savitt Partners has repositioned 530 Seventh Avenue in the Fashion District as a haven for modern TAMI tenants.
The 490,000 s/f has a 70 percent office tenancy, a major turnaround from the 95 percent fashion related companies who occupied the building five years ago.
The Savitt Partners team of Brian Neugeboren and Nicole Goetz has been at the forefront of the repositioning strategy.
“With the evolution of Fashion District into a full service neighborhood with numerous dining spots and retail destinations, we have worked diligently and in a strategic manner to make 530 Seventh Avenue the epicenter of the changes taking shape in the neighborhood by attracting TAMI and office users looking for high-quality space, as well as tenants that have grown their operations in the property necessitating subleases,” said Neugeboren.
“We are extremely proud of the work we have accomplished, and we are looking forward to maintaining 530 Seventh Avenue as the destination of choice for a variety of office space users.” “In addition to our work in the repositioning of the property, the growth of co-working environment Space530, as well as the $11 million investment and creation of The Skylark, a 365-day rooftop cocktail lounge that provides tenants with the ideal location to entertain clients, has helped to elevate the building to its current heights,” added Goetz. “Specifically, Space530 offers a membership option for office space, which many tenants use as their business grows beyond capacity prior to expanding to new space within the building. Also, the state-of-the-art meeting rooms available at Space530 make the property even more attractive to these new TAMI groups.”
Among the new companies taking space at the property is Precision Extract, Inc., a global access expert in health economic value, demonstration, pricing and commercialization excellence, which committed to a long-term sublease totaling 12,044 s/f on the 16th floor.

10X Ventures, Inc., a venture capital firm offering legal and tech guidance to newly established companies, inked an 11,700-sq.-ft. office sublease for its first location in New York City.
