AC Lion, a firm specializing in sales and technology recruitment, has signed a seven-year lease for the entire 6,000-square-foot 15th floor at 253 West 35th Street, it was announced today. Asking rents were not disclosed.
“We were able to identify an efficient full-floor opportunity with high, exposed ceilings, polished concrete floors, large windows and an abundance of natural light that catered to an open plan user,” Sam Seiler, vice president at CBRE, who represented the tenant, told The Commercial Observer.
The firm, currently headquartered at 62 West 45th Street, will relocate in early June. The move was motivated by both lease expiration and expansion, with the firm nearly doubling its space with the relocation.
“This location provides proximity to the majority of their tech clients in Midtown South,” Mr. Seiler noted.
AC Lion, in addition to placement services, also provides strategic guidance to start-ups from ideation to exit.
“253 West 35th provides a launching pad for AC Lion’s next round of growth,” added Alan Cutter, chief executive officer of AC Lion, in a prepared statement. “We now have the proper space to launch our incubator as we seek to capitalize of the continued growth of New York’s Silicon Alley.”
Alan Bonnet of Adams & Company represented the landlord, Shulsky Properties.
