Andiamo Partners, a technology staffing and consulting firm, will be moving its headquarters from Lower Manhattan to 17 State Street near Battery Park, Commercial Observer has learned.
The company signed a 10-year lease for 6,668 square feet on the eighth floor of the 42-story tower. The asking rent was $60 per square foot, according to a Savills Studley representative.
Andiamo Partners is currently in about half that space at 90 Broad Street. The firm is expected to complete the move in the first quarter of 2015.
Savills Studley’s Oliver Petrovic and Marc R. Shapses represented Andiamo Partners in the negotiations. AJ Camhi, Ryan Silverman and Steve Morrows represented the building’s owner, RFR Realty, in-house.
Mr. Petrovic said that Downtown made “the most sense” for Andiamo. He noted in prepared remarks: “The company outgrew their current space, and after looking at both Midtown and Lower Manhattan alternatives, the value that downtown provided made it the best option.”
Andiamo Partners, which was founded in 2004, works to place talent from the technology sector at tech and financial services firms. Andiamo Partners’ clients include Goldman Sachs, MasterCard, Morgan Stanley, Amazon.com and Bloomberg.
