As first reported under consideration in April, Macmillan has now finalized a deal to relocate their offices to 120 Broadway in early 2019. Their lease in Flatiron Building was due to expire next year. The press release indicates Macmillan is taking four floors comprising 261,000 square feet of space for 20 years. They currently occupy about 176,00 square feet in the Flatiron for the trade division, but have offices elsewhere in city as well, primarily for the education group. The release says they will “relocate…from multiple locations” to the new space.
Chief operating officer Andrew Weber says in the announcement, “The move will be great for our people and our planned growth, and the architectural heritage of 120 Broadway means we will be moving from one of New York City’s great iconic buildings to another.” (That’s about 4 blocks south of HarperCollins’ office building, which was recently occupied by Harry Abrams as well.)
