99 Hudson Street in Tribeca

A civil rights organization, LatinoJustice PRLDEF, is ditching its longtime home in Tribeca for a bigger space.

The organization, formerly known as the Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund, is leaving 99 Hudson Street, the New York Post reported. LatinoJustice owns the 14th floor of the building, where it’s been for 25 years. CBRE Group is consulting on the sale of the 12,328-square-foot space.

The group is looking to move to a bigger space, though the location has not yet been determined.

In 2015, LaSalle Investment Management paid $48 million for the top three floors of the 97-year-old office condo building. Three years prior, JMC Holdings bought the space for significantly less — $18.5 million. Unilever started leasing a majority of the space — 30,000 square feet — in 2014. [NYP] — Kathryn Brenzel
