The company will now occupy 7,689 square feet on the 16th floor of the 520,000-square-foot tower between West 34th and West 35th Streets, according to a press release from landlord Kaufman Organization.

BluePrint’s lease is for five years, the release indicates, and the asking rent in the deal was in the high-$50s per square foot. Barbara Raskob of Kaufman Organization represented the landlord in-house. The tenant did not have a broker, according to a spokeswoman for Kaufman Organization.

“450 Seventh Avenue provides tenants with premium office space in a central location, conveniently located across the street from [Pennsylvania] Station, and within walking distance to the Port Authority [Bus Terminal] and all major subway lines,” Steven Kaufman, the president of Kaufman Organization, said in prepared remarks. “Located in a bustling area, the neighborhood attracts a diverse group of companies ranging from established companies to companies seeking to establish themselves.”

The consulting company first signed at the building for 2,007 square feet in January 2014, as Real Estate Weekly reported at the time.

BluePrint’s expansion is one of several recent leases announced by Kaufman Organization at the 46-story property. Healthy smoothie joint The Juice Shop signed a 1,200-square-foot deal for office space at 450 Seventh Avenue, according to the release. KBB Partners, an insurance service company, took 2,134 square feet in a five-year lease.
