The company will move into the Empire State Building next year. A press release from STV describes the new offices as “a bright modern workplace” that will “create an environment where STV employees can do their best work.” 

ESRT is building out 65,000 square feet of amenities for Empire State Building tenants that include a fitness center, conference center, eight dining options, a three-story Starbucks Reserve and a lounge space with attached pickleball and basketball courts. 

David Goldstein and Dina Zavislak of Savills brokered the deal for STV. Ryan Kass, Jordan Berger and Shanae Ursini represented the landlord in-house, along with Scott Klau, Erik Harris and Neil Rubin of Newmark. Spokespeople for Savills and Newmark didn’t immediately return requests for comment.

ESRT also recently signed half-floor leases in the building with OFS Brands and Resolution Life, totaling 23,477 square feet. 

We were thrilled to hear that all of these organizations were attracted to the Empire State Building’s prime location near major transport, modernized spaces with industry-leading sustainability, and unmatched, extensive amenities,” Thomas Durels, executive vice president at ESRT, said in a statement.
