Blogging platform Tumblr is expanding its territory inside Centaur Properties’ 35 East 21st Street in Midtown South.

The company moved into a 5,000-square-foot space there in 2010. Then the office ballooned to 30,000 square feet two years later. Now Tumblr will occupy 50,000 square feet of the 100,000-square-foot property. It also has access to a private, 7,000-square-foot roof deck that serves as an entertainment space.

Newmark Grubb Knight Frank broker Danny Levine and David Falk represented Centaur in the lease.

“They have created a creative working environment, a space that incorporates everything from an internal cafeteria, to meeting rooms, to open-plan bench style work seating, to a private elevator, to outdoor space,” Levine told Crain’s. “They really have everything here.” [Crain's]Mark Maurer
