Swimwear Brand Onia Relocating HQ to the Mercantile Building


Men’s and women’s swimwear brand Onia is heading down stream with a move one block south of its current digs to the Mercantile Building, Commercial Observer has learned.

Onia has leased the entire 37th floor of the 48-story, 442,042-square-foot 10 East 40th Street between Madison and Fifth Avenues. The 8,772-square-foot floor will house the brand’s headquarters, including a sales showroom and design studios, according to the tenant’s broker, Newmark Grubb Knight Frank. NGKF’s Justin DiMare represented the tenant in the transaction. He declined to comment on the deal, but noted in a press release that the company wanted to consolidate on one floor and lease a larger space.
