Muriel Siebert, a woman who broke a big glass ceiling in finance, is moving up from the 19th to the 31st floor of 885 Third Avenue aka the Lipstick Building. Ms. Siebert’s firm, Muriel Siebert & Company, signed a new lease in the famed building, where it was one of the first tenants starting in  1986.

With this lease, the Lipstick Building reached 95 percent occupancy. And Ms. Siebert, who in 1967 became the first woman to own a seat on the New York Stock Exchange, will have room for her company to expand in pre-built space at the 34-story tower.

Her decision to expand her offices at the Lipstick Building is another vote of confidence for a relatively new ownership.”

Newmark Grubb Knight Frank‘s Mark Weiss, Scott Klau and Erik Harris represented the landlord, IRSA of Argentina.

A representative for IRSA did not immediately respond to questions regarding the details of the lease.
