The organization will relocate from its roughly 2,900-square-foot home at 1270 Broadway between West 32nd and West 33rd Streets to 1040 Avenue of the Americas between West 39th and West 40th Streets, according to Ryan Herzich of Joseph P. Day Realty. It’s new space will include 3,789 square feet.

“It was a much-needed move,” said Mr. Herzich. “It accommodated for the tightness of space in their current quarters.”

Mr. Herzich, along with Craig S. Berman and Sam Irlander, also of Joseph P. Day, represented the tenant in negotiations. Newmark Grubb Knight Frank’s William Cohen and Andrew Weisz represented the landlord, Skyline Developers.

“It’s a solid, B+ avenue building with great proximity to metro transit,” said Mr. Herzich of the property.

NGKF could not immediately be reached for comment.
