Dice Holdings, Inc. has renewed and expanded its lease in Midtown.
The prominent provider of specialized career websites for professional communities will maintain its occupancy around Bryant Park in Skyline Properties‘ historic Art Deco 1040 Avenue of the Americas.
The firm, which has added approximately 4,500-square-feet to its lease, will trade its space on the 16th floor in favor of the entire 8th floor spanning 12,007-square-feet.
“We are delighted to continue our partnership with such a well-established business and outstanding tenant at 1040 Avenue of the Americas.” said Orin Wilf, president of Skyline Developers in a prepared statement. “Since acquiring the building, we have established it as one of the premier office buildings around Bryant Park, and a destination for tenants looking for well-crafted office space.”
Newmark Grubb Knight Frank‘s William Cohen, Ryan Kass and Andrew Weisz were instrumental in the transaction and represented both parties.
The team has seen a promising year, bringing in tenants like Vortexx Entertainment Ventures and Charles River Systems Inc. The former opened up its first New York office, a 4,699-square-foot space on the ninth floor. Charles River Systems also took a 3,519 square foot part of the ninth floor.
The remaining space is limited in the 300,000-square-foot building. Aside from the eighth floor, only the entire 6,895-square-foot, 24th floor and a small selection of 3,500 to 7,500-square-foot prebuilts remain available.
Asking rent for the deal and the building are generally in the low to mid $50s per square foot.
