Last week, SeatGeek announced it will be relocating its headquarters to 72,800 square feet of Midtown Manhattan office space at 902 Broadway. The company, which helps fans buy and sell sports, concert and theater tickets through their mobile-oriented online platform, will be moving out of its previous location at 400 Lafayette Street.
According to a press release, SeatGeek has outgrown its 27,000-square-foot space at 400 Lafayette Street, as throughout the year it worked with several big sports franchises, including the Dallas Cowboys and the New Orleans Saints and Pelicans. Therefore, it plans to move its offices to the eighth through eleventh floors of 902 Broadway in June 2019. During the coming months, the company will build a “home away from home” for its employees at this new location.
Savills Studley’s Nick Farmakis, David Goldstein, Brad Wok and Chris Thompson handled the deal on behalf of the tenant. The landlord, the Rosen family, was represented by Max Koeppel and David Koeppel of Koeppel Rosen LLC. The New York Post reported the asking rent as being in the low $70s per square foot.
“Our new home at 902 Broadway is a perfect match for our company’s culture and growth,” said Marta Zaharoff, SeatGeek’s Director of Office Operations. “We’re looking forward to making the space our own, and giving our employees an office where they can continue to thrive.”
Following the SeatGeek deal, the office building between East 20th and East 21st streets is 98 percent leased. Other tenants there include IMAX, marketing and communications company Cramer-Krasselt, and architecture firm MKDA.
