Trunk Archives, a prominent high-end stock image company, will nearly double their presence in Soho, The Commercial Observer has learned.
The company, initially working out of a 5,500-square-foot space on the fourth floor, will be taking another 3,500-square-feet on the third floor of 466 Broome Street to house its expanding operations.
Catherine O’Toole of Tarter Stats O’Toole noted that the office featured exposed brick walls, Brazilian hardwood floors, pantry windows on all sides, and recently renovated marble bathrooms.
The expansion will tack on another five years to the lease. The asking rent for the space was requested at $70 per square foot.
Ms. O’Toole was the sole representative for both Trunk Archives and the landlord, 466-26 Soho LLC. Ms. O’Toole noted that other tenants include Jack Spade, which occupies the retail base of the building, and TIGI Advanced Hairdressing Academy on the second floor.
Trunk Archives is known for a collection of more than 120,000 high-end images, specifically surrounding fashion, beauty, lifestyle, design, architecture and travel concepts. Images in the firm’s archives have been featured in Condé Nast Publications, Hearst, and Hachette magazines as well as in advertising for Bath & Body Works, Panasonic, and Porsche.
In addition to the New York office, Trunk Archives operates out of Los Angeles and two locations in Paris for its editorial and advertising offices.
