A high-end meal-in-a-box provider has inked a deal for new office space at the World’s Tower Building near Bryant Park, Commercial Observer has learned.
Hamptons Lane, which ships boxes with four to seven ingredients for meals to its members on Plated, Blue Apron and HelloFresh, is leasing 2,868 square feet at the building bearing an official address of 110 West 40th Street, according to Adams & Co. The purveyor of mailable fare’s new office space will be on part of the 11th floor of the 26-story structure between Avenue of the Americas and Seventh Avenue.
The company moved in last month and signed a six-year lease. Hamptons Lane took the space previously occupied by Treajean, a textile company. Asking rent in the deal was $52 per square foot.
Hamptons Lane relocated from 112 West 34th Street between Avenue of the Americas and Seventh Avenue.
David Levy and Brett Maslin of Adams & Co. represented both the tenant and the landlord in the 110 West 40th Street deal. In a statement via a spokesman, Mr. Levy said Hamptons Lane was drawn by the proximity to mass transit hubs such as Grand Central Terminal and Pennsylvania Station.
“110 West 40th Street provides Hamptons Lane employees with a convenient commute to work, due to the building’s central location within the transit triangle,” he said in a statement. “When viewing the space, the company immediately connected with the classic Manhattan façade, impressive modern interiors and sweeping city views from the 11th floor.”
In July, New Leaf Literary & Media, a boutique publisher, signed a lease to take 3,491 square feet at the Midtown building, as CO previously reported.
