FuseFX is relocating from a smaller office at 584 Broadway, between Prince Street and Houston Street in Soho. 

The new space at 32 Old Slip “will provide a significant upgrade to our previous location in SoHo, with a more contemporary and creative space, better technical infrastructure, and better flexibility for the people and technology we need to serve our clients,” said David Altenau, the CEO of FuseFX, in a statement. 

FuseFX was represented by TJ Hochanadel and Dan Santagata of JLL. Alexandra Budd and Daniel Birney handled the transaction in-house for RXR, along with CBRE’s Zac Price and Michael Affronti
