The maker of Wild Turkey, SKYY Vodka and other spirits is moving its U.S. headquarters to the Grace Building on Bryant Park.

Campari America, the stateside arm of Italy’s Campari Group, signed a 10-year lease for just under 65,000 square feet at the building owned by Brookfield Property Partners and the Swig Company, the Commercial Observer reported.

Campari will be relocating its U.S. headquarters from San Francisco, where it’s been based since 1992. The company’s lease covers the full 18th and 19th floors in the 48-story building, which is located at 1114 Sixth Avenue.

Executives for Campari said the relocation puts the office in closer proximity to operations in Milan, Kentucky, Jamaica, Mexico and Canada.

“This move will help to increase collaboration with key business partners and our Milan counterparts; allow us to more easily hire candidates with deep spirits experience; and give us the room to expand as we grow our portfolio of premium brands,” Jean Jacques Dubau, Campari Group’s managing director for its business unit in North America, said in a prepared statement.

Colliers International’s Joseph Cabrera, David Glassman, Tim Kuhn, Brendan Cavender and Steve Maneri represented Campari in the deal. CBRE’s Ken Rapp, Sarah Pontius, Peter Turchin, Zak Snider and Cara Chayet handle leasing at the Grace Building.

The asking rent in the deal was not immediately available, but Bank of America recently signed a 127,000-square-foot lease in the building with a starting rent in the $70s per square foot, according to the CO. [CO]Rich Bockmann
