NEO Philanthropy — which awards grants to organizations committed to social justice and human rights causes — is currently headquartered nearby at Samco Properties45 West 36th Street, according to ABS. It’s unclear when NEO plans to move into its new space.

“We are seeing an influx of prospective tenants seeing our high-quality space, tremendous natural light, and the value proposition presented here: raw space to design how they wished; windows on three sides; recently refreshed lobby all centrally located in the transit triangle,” said ABS’s John Cinosky, who represented the landlord in-house along with James Caseley.

David Lebenstein and Debra Wollens of Cushman & Wakefield (CWK) negotiated on behalf of the tenant. C&W declined to comment.

The 25-story, 250,000-square-foot 1001 Avenue of the Americas sits two blocks south of Bryant Park and the nonprofit’s current offices.
