Grant Associates Makes Headquarters Move to FiDi

ABS Partners Real Estate has secured a five-year lease for 6,565 square feet of headquarters space on behalf of Grant Associates at 39 Broadway, also known as the Harriman Building. The tenant, a workforce development company, will relocate its corporate headquarters to the Financial District and will occupy the 447,452-square-foot office property’s entire 31st floor.

Andy Udis and Alison Miller of ABS represented Grant Associates, which considered several Manhattan submarkets before deciding on 39 Broadway. “There is tremendous value in the downtown office market, and Grant Associates required office space in a prestigious location for its employees and growing client base,” said Udis.

“39 Broadway qualifies for lucrative real estate tax abatement programs affecting properties in Lower Manhattan, and those incentives, combined with convenient access to transportation, were strong drivers in Grant Associates’ decision to move its headquarters to FiDi,” he added.
