The fashion company, known for making sweaters, plans to move its New York City offices and showroom from 1450 Broadway in October, according to Adams & Co. The firm also has a showroom in Los Angeles.

David Levy of Adams & Co. handled the deal in-house for the landlord while JLL (JLL)’s Amanda Bokman and Seth Godnick represented By Design. A spokesman for JLL did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

“463 Seventh Avenue continues to attract a wide variety of tenants in the fashion, nonprofit and professional services industries,” Levy said in a statement. “Given its central location along what was once known famously as ‘Fashion Avenue,’ the building offers easy access to convenient transportation options, top-of-the-line facilities and appealing neighborhood lifestyle attractions such as the Moxy Hotel’s rooftop bar and Times Square.”

Other tenants in the 478,800-square-foot 463 Seventh Avenue include clothing manufacturer Adjmi Apparel Group, swimwear designer In Mocean Group, fashion industry consultancy The Doneger Group and New York-Presbyterian Hospital.
