Fast Company, Inc. Magazines Moving Headquarters Downtown
Mansueto Ventures LLC, publisher of the business media brands Inc. and Fast Company, announced today that it signed a 15-year lease agreement on July 25 with Silverstein Properties Inc. for approximately 40,000 square feet of space in 7 World Trade Center, located at 250 Greenwich Street in Downtown Manhattan.
Mansueto is the first corporate tenant to locate its national headquarters in Silverstein Properties’ new skyscraper, 7 World Trade Center, which is the city’s first certified "green" commercial office building. Mansueto, which is currently located in midtown Manhattan, plans to move into 7 WTC in early 2007 and will occupy one entire floor in the building, which offers 360-degree panoramic views of New York City, the harbor and New Jersey.
"Our media brands are all about inspiring entrepreneurial passion, innovation and showcasing the vision and intellect of business leaders who think ﾑbeyond the box’ to create great opportunities," said Mansueto CEO John Koten, in a statement. "Our selection of 7 World Trade Center, one of the City’s newest state-of-the-art buildings that symbolizes the leadership, pride and future prosperity of the City, reflects our company ethos to see ﾑbeyond the box’ and our vision of the long term contributions that Lower Manhattan will provide to New York City and to the future growth of our company."
7 World Trade Center is New York City’s first high-rise office building to be certified by the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) rating system. The building’s environmental design features include state-of-the-art ultra-clear exterior glass technology, high-efficiency air filtration, energy and water conservation technologies and 15,000 square feet of open park space to provide a pleasing urban environment for tenants, neighbors and building visitors.
