Nonprofit Media Group Relocates to Feil’s 853 Broadway 

The Feil Organization has signed a five-year, 7,896-square-foot lease with First Look Media for the entire 10th floor at 853 Broadway in Manhattan. The space is a new pre-built featuring offices with glass tags, polished concrete floors and an open ceiling and represents Feil’s second pre-built lease recently. 

Relocating from 114 Fifth Ave., the new tenant is a national nonprofit media organization that houses a production studio and streaming service. It also funds various independent media, nonprofit entities and initiatives, including the acclaimed The Intercept, Field of Vision, Lawyers for Reporters and the Press Freedom Initiative at the University of Maryland.  

Feil was represented in house by head of commercial leasing Andrew Wiener and Rob Fisher. First Look Media was represented by Savills’ Gary Stein, Ken Ruderman and Michael Bertini. 

853 Broadway is a 157,000-square-foot office property located near Union Square and undergoing a multimillion-dollar renovation.
