The Government of Slovenia is moving its office a few blocks north, the New York Observer reported.

The Permanent Mission of the Republic of Slovenia to the United Nations signed a 15-year lease to occupy the entire 20th floor at 630 Third Avenue. The new office will be approximately 5,829 square feet. The government outpost is scheduled to move from its current address at 600 Third Avenue to its new home on the corner of 41st Street in September.

“We’re proud to welcome this important global organization to 630 Third Avenue,” said Kate Goodman, co-president of ATCO Properties, which owns and manages 630 Third Avenue. Goodman added that, with the building’s proximity to Grand Central Terminal and the United Nations, it makes the new address an ideal location for the tenant.

Arthur Draznin and Hunter Berman of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank brokered the deal on behalf of the building, while Marc Shapses and Nancy Weinstein of Studley represented Slovenia in the transaction. [NYO] – James Comtois
