Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America will move Downtown to the Trump Organization’s 40 Wall Street, according to a release from Cushman & Wakefield. The volunteer organization, which advocates for Israeli interests and for health education, will take 46,175 square feet on the seventh and eighth floors of the 72-story building.

“Hadassah made the decision that moving to new space downtown would update its corporate culture, transform its self-image and make an important statement of innovation and fiscal responsibility for the organization,” Marcie Natan, Hadassah’s national president, said in the release. Hadassah was represented in the deal by Cushman & Wakefield’s David Green, Carri Lyon and Jon Herman, while the Trump Organization was represented by their colleagues Jeffrey Lichtenberg, Frank Cento and Scott Silverstein.

The organization will relocate from 50 West 58th Street, where it is spread out over eight floors. “40 Wall Street is a great fit for Hadassah because it allows them to operate their business on two highly efficient floorplates, with a hands-on ownership team,” Green said.

Last year, the Green Ivy School agreed to take 80,000 square feet in the building. – Hiten Samtani
