Lights, camera, action! The New York Film Academy has relocated to its new 17 Battery Park South digs following a $44 million deal that took 18 months to complete, according to a release from the Moinian Group, which owns the property. The school will lease 73,321 square feet for 15 years, a statement from Moinian said today.

The space will officially open for classes this summer.

The Real Deal first reported last December that the building would soon house the school, teaches aspiring actors and producers the film trade.

The school will occupy two full floors of the building, and will have state-of-the-art production studios and stages — the technical requirements for which took months of negotiation to iron out details on, the release said.

Howard Kessler and Jordan Gosin of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank represented the tenant. Jeffrey Gural and Adam Leshowitz, also of Newmark, represented the landlord. —Zachary Kussin
