Curtis Partition signed a 9,341-square-foot lease for the entire ninth floor of 253 West 35th Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues, according to Adams & Co. Real Estate. The 10-year lease was signed last week, at an asking rent of $44 a square foot.

In October, the 50-year-old company will move down the block from the third floor of 505 Eighth Avenue at the corner of West 35th Street.

Alan Bonett and Bradley Cohn of Adams & Co. represented the landlord, Shulsky Properties, in the transaction. Michael Gottlieb and Joseph Gervino of Avison Young represented the tenant.

Curtis Partition needed a larger, more modern and efficient space to accommodate its growing number of employees and clientele,” said Bonett, said in prepared remarks.. It was important to Curtis Partition’s executive team that they remain in the Garment District, allowing the company to be easily accessible to the contractors and developers that they serve.”

The drywall firm has worked on several high-profile projects, including 1 World Trade Center, the Brooklyn Museum and the West 53rd Street branch of the New York Public Library.
