Harman’s Design Studio Becomes Midtown Tenant
Harman International’s newly-created design agency, Huemen, will occupy 11,000 square feet at Savanna’s 19 W. 44th St. The space, which includes a 2,000-square-foot outdoor terrace (pictured), will serve as Stamford, CT-based Harman’s global internal design headquarters and Huemen’s anchor studio for external clients.
Savills Studley’s Christopher Foerch represented Harman alongside Los Angeles-based colleague Marcus Arredondo, who works with Harman globally. Savanna was represented by JLL’s Mitch Konsker, Ben Bass, Barbara Winter and Kip Orban.
Huemen is Savanna’s first new tenant since acquiring the 303,943-square-foot office property for $195 million in October 2017.
For Huemen, “it was critical to find a bright, unique space that would attract creative talent and foster innovation,” said Foerch. “The company desired outdoor space for both recruiting purposes as well as host product launch and industry events, all while being located near Grand Central for quick access to its Stamford headquarters.”
