gyro’s rapid growth required the company to seek out a new headquarters space on a larger single floor.
New York, NY (PRWEB) September 18, 2014
As Downtown leasing activity by media companies continues unabated, gyro, a prominent global business-to-business advertising agency, is relocating to Lower Manhattan and expanding its office space by nearly double its current size.
The firm has signed an 11-year lease that will make them the only tenant to occupy an entire floor at 115 Broadway, a landmarked 21 story office property located on the corner of Broadway and Cedar Street.
gyro’s current address is 31 West 27th Street and expects to relocate in the 4th quarter of 2014.
Savills Studley’s Executive Managing Director I. Keith Ellis represented gyro in the long-term transaction.
According to Mr. Ellis, a 20-year veteran of the commercial real estate industry who has represented media tenants such as Interpublic Group, FCB, Publicis Group, Clear Channel Communications, and Weber Shandwick, gyro’s rapid growth required the company to seek out a new headquarters space on a larger single floor.
“gyro required an open design and connectedness in a signature Manhattan office building,” he said, noting that their new space at 115 Broadway provides state-of-the-art infrastructure in a “beautifully restored” landmarked office building. “It’s an ideal mix of historic and modern. Continuing its global expansion, gyro’s new Manhattan lease comes on the heels of its recently-announced Chicago office re-location. The firm has signed a lease relocating and expanding its office space into another landmarked property, the Wrigley Building – an iconic skyscraper located directly across Michigan Avenue.” Additionally, the award-winning agency has expanded to larger locations in its London and Denver markets as well.

gyro New York President Keith Turco said, “On the heels of our 2014 global agency of the year win as well as a recent influx of new and iconic clients, gyro will double its size moving to a new location in the Wall Street area. The new space – currently undergoing a complete redesign - is part of a 1904 landmark building and will combine the legacy of its gothic architecture with the state of art of 22nd century technology and seamless connectivity. This offers our growing advertising agency a chance to keep embracing change and be a part of a growing and transforming part of Manhattan, while contributing to its resurgence.”
