Omni New York is heading to 909 Third Avenue.

Mo Vaughn and Eugene Schneur’s real estate development firm signed a 10-year lease for nearly 33,000 square feet on the entire 21st floor of Vornado Realty Trust’s building, Commercial Observer reported. The asking rent was in the $70s per square foot, the report said.

Omni, which primarily builds affordable housing, will be taking the space previously occupied by a division of the Interpublic Group of Companies.

JLL’s Alexander Chudnoff and Benjamin Bass represented the tenant and Vornado was represented in-house by Edward Riguardi and Ryan Levy, according to the report.

The company is leaving roughly 31,000 square feet at 1 Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, at 245 East 47th Street, in the first quarter of 2019. Omni has been there for about 10 years. The move will allow all its employees to be on one floor, the report said. [CO] — Meenal Vamburkar
