EcoHealth opts for another 10 years near Hudson Yards

EcoHealth Alliance has inked a deal to renew its 17th-floor digs at Kaufman Organization’s 460 West 34th Street.

The nonprofit environmental health organization’s lease on the 11,000-square-foot space will be good for an additional 10 years, the New York Observer reported.

James Emden, Colliers International’s vice chairman, who along with Melinda Fishman represented the tenant, told the Observer that the proximity to the up-and-coming Hudson Yards District was a part of the continued appeal for EcoHealth.

“We explored relocation options, but the Kaufman Organization has been a tremendous partner,” Emden told the Observer. “Signing an early renewal for the existing space was the most desirable option.”

Edward Hart represented Kaufman in-house.

The 19th-story property, built in 1927, is also home to SBLI Mutual Life Insurance Company, which inked a five-year renewal in 2012, and Counsel Press, an appellate services firm with space on the building’s fourth floor. [NYO]Julie Strickland
