Alexander Wang moves global headquarters to Lower Manhattan

With a view to getting creative employees back to work, fashion designer Alexander Wang is relocating his global headquarters to the Seaport in Lower Manhattan.

The eponymous company has outgrown its longtime home at 386 Broadway in Soho and will move to the top floor of 200 Front St., right in the middle of the historic harbor area, next year.

“It was an opportunity to re-imagine the corporate headquarters to accommodate the larger company that exists today,” said Shaun Black of Black, representing the designer.

There, employees will enjoy 20-plus-foot ceilings, a wraparound terrace with views of the East River, skylights, a mezzanine, dedicated elevators and escalators, and even access to nearly a dozen flagpoles, which line the perimeter of the roof ready for new flags to pierce the sky.

“It will be designed to attract employees back to the office with a build-out that will foster physical collaboration and offer not only an open plan concept but cubic space, light and air,” Black said. “It is well located in a very lively area that will allow the streetscape to become an extension of the facilities.”

The space, a third-floor addition set back above the Fulton Market building and flanked by a grand terrace, was pulled from the market during the pandemic, said CBRE’s Gerry Miowski, who represented ownership with Mary Ann Tighe. Kia, Brett Shannon, Zack Price and Marsha Dudelzak.

The unique penthouse will be configured for all the offices of the company as well as its showrooms. “It was perfect for both the tenant and the landlord,” Mioski said. He declined to discuss the rent on a 15-year deal, saying “It was about finding the right rent that worked for both Alexander Wang and Howard Hughes, for a tenant who was friendly to the neighborhood and right.” Was fit. It’s great for the city.”

Alexander Wang, who launched his eponymous fashion house in 2005, coincidentally presented a runway show and an afterparty at the Seaport’s Pier 17 in 2018 before its redevelopment. But Black was unaware of this before narrowing down the possibilities to “hundreds” of options.

David R. O’Reilly, CEO of Howard Hughes Corporation, said in a statement, “Alexander Wang’s selection of the port for our new NYC office and showroom reflects the growing demand we are seeing for commercial space across the country. Surrounded by strong experiential offerings and integrated into our nation’s most dynamic communities.”

Other companies that are now based in Seaport include iPic, ESPN’s broadcast studio, and Nike’s creative studio. The Fulton Building is now fully occupied, while Pier 17 has 88,000 square feet with several other spaces still available.
