The Government of Slovenia is relocating its New York office, The Commercial Observer has learned.
The southern Central European country will be moving its Permanent Mission of the Republic of Slovenia to the United Nations from 600 Third Avenue to 630 Third Avenue. The new office will be comprised of the entire 20th floor, approximately 5,829 square feet on the corner of 41st Street.
The mission is slated to move into the building in September, inking the space for a 15-year duration.
Given its proximity to the United Nations, Midtown East attracts international organizations and governments to its office spaces from Third Avenue eastward until the East River. In particular, 630 Third Avenue markets itself as being close to both Grand Central and the United Nations and is home to Sard Verbinnen & Co., Cox Padmore Skolnik & Shakarchy Inc., and Commonwealth Land Title.
“We’re proud to welcome this important global organization to 630 Third Avenue, which is strategically situated between Grand Central Terminal and the UN–making it an ideal location for the tenant,” said Kate Goodman, co-president of ATCO Properties, owner and managers of 630 Third Avenue.
Newmark Grubb Knight Frank is the exclusive brokerage firm for the building, headed by Arthur Draznin, an executive manager director. Mr. Draznin was assisted by Hunter Berman, an associate. Slovenia was represented by Marc Shapses and Nancy Weinstein of Studley.
Space is limited in the building, with only a pair of small offices totaling 6,831 square feet currently available, said Ms. Goodman.
