Lee NYC Arranges SoHo Office Space for SpotMap  

Lee & Associates NYC represented SpotMap, Inc., the company behind the popular video calling social network app FAM, in a new office lease for 7,147 square feet at 176 Grand St. in Soho. FAM allows users to connect with friends and foster new friendships virtually, through its live video calling social network that mimics socializing in real life. 

A Lee & Associates team of Dennis Someck and Justin Myers represented SpotMap. Janet Liff of Liff & Co represented the landlord, Split Rail Holdings LLC. 

“As a fast-growing tech company, they had a need for office space that was inspiring, innovative and functional,” said Someck, executive managing director & principal at Lee NYC. “Though the FAM app relies heavily on virtual interactions, we’re excited to have advised their team and found a space that incorporates their needs and offers a great in-person experience.
