Nonprofit Vibrant Emotional Health to Increase Space in Headquarters Relocation to Rudin’s Reimagined 80 Pine Street

 Rudin, a full-service real estate organization, and one of New York City’s largest private owners, operators and developers of first-class real estate, announced today that nonprofit mental health provider Vibrant Emotional Health (Vibrant), has completed a 15-year lease totaling 59,550 square feet at 80 Pine Street, its 1.2-million-square-foot Financial District office tower.

Vibrant Emotional Health’s footprint will span the entire 18th and 19th floors of the 38-story building. The company has been at the forefront of promoting emotional well-being for all people for over 50 years, is the administrator of the national 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline (988 Lifeline), the national Disaster Distress Hotline, the Veterans Crisis Line, the NFL Life Line, and NYC Well, as well as community-based mental health programs across the country. Vibrant plans to relocate from its current 31,000-square-foot space at 50 Broadway in mid-2023.

“Vibrant is excited to begin the next chapter of our organization’s story at the beautiful 80 Pine Street location,” said Lesleigh Irish-Underwood, Chief External Affairs Officer & Head of Brand for Vibrant Emotional Health. “At a time when so many across the country are experiencing obstacles to their mental health, empowering people to achieve emotional well-being is more important than ever before. To have Vibrant housed within these facilities will bolster the impact we are able to make with our work.”

Vibrant’s headquarters relocation marks roughly 200,000 square feet of new leases, expansions, and renewals signed by Rudin over the past year at 80 Pine, which is in the final stages of a major modernization and repositioning.

Working with Fogarty Finger Architecture, Rudin has renovated 80 Pine’s ground floor spaces, which now feature white terrazzo flooring, white oak paneled walls, energy efficient LED lighting and new elevator cabs. Rudin is also nearing completion on an interconnected amenity center located on the 22nd and 23rd floors. This space will feature a café, lounge, conference facility and a 4,600-square-foot outdoor terrace. The renovation program emphasizes occupant health and wellness with such features as touch-free access points and advanced air filtration technology.

“Vibrant’s commitment is further validation of our ongoing efforts to maintain a best-in-class work environment at 80 Pine and a testament to Lower Manhattan’s continued allure as a business district,” said Michael Rudin, Executive Vice President at Rudin. “We are proud that 80 Pine continues to attract companies like Vibrant, which understand that workspaces that foster collaboration and creativity are vital to cultivating a successful company culture.”

This is the eighth leasing commitment secured by Rudin at 80 Pine over the last year. Rudin previously announced seven new leases and expansions totaling over 136,000 square feet with The Global Alliance for TB Drug Development, Inc., Elefterakis, Elefterakis & Panek LLP, New York Property Insurance Underwriting Association, AccuWeather, Inc., CureMD, January Digital and The National Urban League. Each of these were signed following the commencement of the comprehensive capital improvement and amenity program at 80 Pine.

Vibrant was represented by CBRE’s Chris Mansfield, Gerry Miovski, Masha Dudelzak and Ali Gordon. Rudin was represented in-house by Kevin Daly and Tom Keating.

Designed by Emery Roth & Sons and constructed by the Rudin family in 1960, 80 Pine occupies a full block between Pearl and Water Streets, just steps from the Seaport District along the East River waterfront.  Its tower floors offer 360-degree views of the East River bridges, Brooklyn, Governors Island and New York Harbor.

Diverse floorplates are available ranging from 13,000 square feet to 60,000 square feet are available and select floors feature large private terraces.
