Diligent Relocates US Headquarters to West 33rd Street


Web-based enterprise communications provider, Diligent Corp., will relocate its U.S. headquarters to 44,700 square feet on West 33rd Street, according to the building’s landlord.

Diligent signed an 11-year lease for parts of the 15th floor and the entire 16th floor of Empire State Realty Trust’s 111 West 33rd Street between Avenue of the Americas and Seventh Avenue, The New York Post first reported. Asking rent for the space was $67 per square foot, a spokeswoman for ESRT said.

“We are excited that Diligent has chosen to relocate their office headquarters to 111 West 33rd Street,” Thomas Durels, the executive vice president of real estate for ESRT, said in a statement.

A spokeswoman for C&W did not respond to a request for comment.

New Zealand-based Diligent will relocate from 22,000 square feet at 1386 Broadway. It’s unclear when its move to West 33rd Street will take place.

Diligent will join life sciences strategy consultancy ClearView Healthcare Partners, Macy’s and ESRT’s corporate headquarters in the 26-story building.
