Morris Adjmi Architects (MA), a leading New York City-based architectural firm, has signed a new 11-year lease at 60 Broad Street comprising the entire 32nd floor of 12,679 s/f.
The approximate one-million-square-foot building is located one block from the New York Stock Exchange, and hosts 360-degree views of lower Manhattan. The building is currently marketing contiguous space ranging in size from 7,000 to 40,000 s/f.
Anthony Stapleton of Cogswell Realty Group represented the landlord, Piedmont Office Realty Trust, in the lease while Robert Yaffa and Wayne Van Aken of Cassidy Turley represented the tenant.
Morris Adjmi is known for contemporary design, inspired by context and history. Among the firm’s iconic projects in New York City’s historic districts are 837 Washington and The High Line Building, both in Manhattan, and the Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn.
“We’ve been experiencing tremendous growth, in both size and in the variety of projects we’re designing,” Adjmi says. “60 Broad gives us more than just the space we need: our new offices have a spectacular view of the chronology of New York architecture. So what we see all around us is also what informs our work: a timeless union of past and present.”

Most recently, technology and media firm XenoPsi Media signed a new 12-year lease for the entire 30th floor comprising 12,820 square feet and law firm Kaufman Dolowish & Voluck signed a new seven-year lease for a 5,758 foot portion of the 36th floor.
