Macmillan Science and Education group is the latest New York City publisher to head for new digs in Lower Manhattan.

The privately-held company has inked a long-term, 176,121-square-foot lease for a new headquarters spot at Brookfield Properties’ One New York Plaza, according to a release from Colliers International, whose Leon Manoff arranged the deal on behalf of Macmillan. The entire Science and Education Group will migrate to the new spot by mid-2015, and will occupy the building’s entire 46th through 48th floors, as well as part of the 45th floor. A total of 950 employees will eventually work in the space.

The move comes as Macmillan Science and Education looks to house its employees in a campus-style setting with an open floor plan and collaborative environment, according to the release. The move follows a similar one by the publisher’s London outpost, which will ultimately move more than 1,500 employees to three renovated historic buildings.

One New York Plaza, which is currently undergoing a $14 million redevelopment to its 40,000-square-foot retail concourse that will add new eateries, a gym, health and beauty store and coffee shop, appealed to the publishing company because of its unobstructed panoramic views and several contiguous large floors, Manoff said in the release.
