The New York Foundation is relocating its offices from Brooklyn's Dumbo neighborhood to Midtown Manhattan

New York Foundation for the Arts Relocates Offices to Midtown Manhattan

The New York Foundation for the Arts signed a 10-year deal to relocate from 20 Jay St. in Brooklyn’s Dumbo neighborhood to 7,150-square-foot offices spanning the ninth floor of 29 W. 38th St. in Midtown Manhattan. Norman Bobrow & Company’s Andre Stanley represented the New York Foundation for the Arts. 

The foundation will move into the 18-story building before year’s end.  The landlord, ABS Partners Real Estate’s Ben Waller, brokered the deal in-house along with Charles Conwell. 

“The foundation wanted a location that would be more convenient for many of its employees who live in Manhattan and New Jersey,” said Stanley, who also said ABS will decorate the building’s lobby with artwork created by New York-based artists the organization supports through its grant programs.  

Other tenants at the building between Avenue of the Americas and Fifth Avenue include consultant M-E Engineers, construction company Site Safety and construction manager PRA Consulting.
