The lease for the furniture and decor seller, which will occupy the space along with its parent company, Natco Products Corp., comes after the retailer closed its previous location at 295 Fifth Avenue when the building was converted to offices, according to landlord Adams & Co. Asking rents were $52 per square foot.

“The whole industry is moving to that location,” Adams & Co.’s David Levy, who brokered the deal in-house, told CO. “They chose what they deemed was the best, most attractive space in a physical space … Location was critical, and being between 33rd and 37th street on Fifth [Avenue] was of primary importance.”

The large, second-floor windows and high ceilings in the building were a draw for the tenant as well, SavillsEvan Margolin, who handled the deal for the tenant with colleague Greg Albert, told CO. 

The deal, which closed Aug. 15, puts Natco alongside civil engineering firm Advantage Engineering Associates, watch company E. Gluck and Citibank

Natco will move into the building between Fifth Avenue and East 37th Street on Oct. 1, occupying space previously held by Bollman Hat.
