Alexander Wang Establishes Headquarters at HHC’s Seaport
Fashion designer Alexander Wang has selected the Howard Hughes Corporation’s (HHC) Seaport for its new global headquarters and showroom, signing a 15-year lease for approximately 46,000 square feet of creative office space at the Fulton Market Building in Lower Manhattan.
The company will take over the entire top floor, including a 5,000-square-foot patio. The lease brings the Fulton Market Building to 100% occupancy.
“In 2018, Alexander Wang presented a runway show at the Seaport that transformed the rooftop at Pier 17 into a panoramic stage of New York City.” said Saul Scherl, president of HHC’s New York Tri-State region. “Today’s announcement exemplifies the significant revitalization of the Seaport neighborhood that has helped transform Lower Manhattan into one of the city’s most sought-after destinations.”
Alexander Wang was represented by Sean Black from BLACKre. HHC was represented by CBRE’s Mary Ann Tighe, Gerry Miovski, Brett Shannon, Zac Price and Masha Dudelzak.
